Peru - April 2017


After 18 hours and three flights we arrived exhausted in Cusco, Peru. Just walking up a flight of stairs to our hotel took some effort - this city is over 11,100 feet in elevation.

After a three hour nap, we ventured out to the city's main square. Cusco is an old colonial city dating back to the 1500, when the Spanish conquistadors invaded and took it over.

We put on a few miles walking through the city. We managed to find a friendly and busy local hangout for a beer and a late lunch.

In the evening we ate at another local hot spot that was family-run just around the corner from our hotel. It had a pizza oven that kept the cook plenty busy. It had a very cozy atmosphere with great food.
