We spent the day getting up at 3 30 am to get here to cuzco around 6 30. we spent the early morning getting everything ready for getting up to machu picchu before hitting the bed for a long nap. we then paid 2 bucks each for a delicious 4 course meal before heading off to ¨shop¨ i spent about 50 bucks and got tons of amazing pieces of art, handwoven tapestries, jewelery and even a gorgeous hammock..for my one day house! cuzco is beautiful and is full of stuff from the inca empire....the people all walk around in their traditional clothing, bright and beautiful. we´ve all been a bit dizzy because of the altitude..almost 12,000 feet. machu picchu is around 13, 000 and lake titicaca and la paz in bolivia are a bit higher....apparently most people get sick but we´re trying to avoid it as best as get shortness of breath after walking up hill a block or two...the plane ride in was amazing as it looked..magical i guess one would say...the andes mountains just shot out of the clouds..everything here is so lush and green but yet soo old and beautiful. tomorrow we have an early morning train ride up to agua caliente (base of machu picchu) and will then head up early on monday morning to seemachu picchu and the sunrise. monday nite we are taking a train to puno, peru which is on lake titicaca. after a day we are heading to la paz, bolivia until our return next sunday to cuzco and then to chile on monday. love to all.
