it is currently 8:02 pm and half of us are already sleeping! It has been an exhausting and long two days. Last night we finally arrived in Lima around midnight, and then had to stay at the airport overnight to wait for a flight at 6 am to Cusco. When we finally got to our hotel, we slept and slept. We ran into some problems with our tour guides. It took Wally about 2 hours working with them to figure out why the deposit didn't go through, but we were able to pay them directly, and everything is working out. We mostly just bummed around throughout the afternoon and then went to dinner at El Truco. The dinner was authentic and great. The scenery here is absolutely beautiful. The mountains are breathtaking. We can't wait for the train ride up to Machu Piccu tomorrow morning (I know I mutilated that but I'm tired).
Walking around Cusco has been great. Everyone is super friendly here, and no one is pushy. That was pretty much our day. We wish we wouldn't have been so exhausted so we could have enjoyed our time here longer, but we have Thursday night here as well. It gets VERY busy here at night and the taxi drivers show no mercy to pedestrians.
Our plans for tomorrow consist of taking the train to aguas calientes, stopping by our hotel and then heading to MP! We stay overnight there and then head back to Cusco in the morning.
We thought we were heading to a warmer climate....and unfortunately packed a little to light. It is a tid bit chilly here. Hopefully it warms up and hopefully Lima will be a lot warmer!
That's it for the night.
