Well we´ve just arrived in Cusco this morning...bags and all! Warm but it was raining. Not the most promising start really! Going up mountains and all! Really heavy at some points. We´ve now met up with the guys..just waiting for Dan tomo, then the Inca Trail!
I´m realy quite burnt, i look like rudolph! my necks quite burnt too but Cusco is a lot cooler so fingers crossed itll turn brown quite soon! Doesn´t hurt at least.
Over the weekend we did a bit of the Lima Culture on a walking tour and saw some lamas and slums outside the center, catacombs, changing of the guard and stuff. Our only time in Centra Lima. Then Yesterday we found this local fruit and veg market, a bit dodge but really cool and bought a selection of alien fruits to try with these two really nice canadian girls, also coming to cusco today. So that was really cool, some were so strange! Going to try find some guinea pig today!! Really want to try it!
This hostels really quite different from the first! The first one was soo nice, safe, quite small, and really sociable. When we weren´t off somewhere we sat in the communal area and chatted. The majority of people we met are coming here today or tomorrow, so it be really nice to see them, know more people here and stuff. This ones a chain, more party type and so much bigger! Really nice still but a different experience i guess, just here for a night, may take advantage of the free sasa lessons!!
Tomorrow night we´re headed for the hotel and then start the inca trail on Wednesday, returning here on the 30th , leaving 31st off on our first hop-on/off bus.
much love!!! Chau xxxxxxxx
