Buonasera,

Am back in Cuzco, on a warm Saturday night, after a full day exploring in the Sacred Valley. I visited many towns and villages including Urubamba, Coya and Pisac. Having a driver whom I could ask to stop whenever I wanted was a real bonus.
The whole valley is spectacular and the people very welcoming.....I hope this comes through in the images.

I was fortunate to be in Pisac when they were having a childrens race event. Just today I shot more than 500 images......

Im keeping this short tonight and let the images speak for themselves.

In the morning Im up at 5.30 for the 10 hour bus trip to Puno and lake Titicaca......which is at a higher altitude than Cuzco......tonight I saw the Hotel having to administer oxygen to a guest!!!!!!!!!.......

Buona Notte...

Mario

Back on the trail
Good morning, Fats, Sunday morning here, and we awake to the rain of Brussels, and England's 1-0 defeat against Brazil yesterday in a friendly (they were useless, but it was the second team). You seem to be getting through all the places at a fair crack, and the photos of the people are superb. I hope Lake Titicaca lives up to its reputation. You still haven't sent me your itinerary, man..... Keep enjoying yourself. The food looks delicious ! Ciao - Carlo
