Cusco, Peru

At 11,000 feet, Cusco, Peru, takes some getting used to having spent five days at sea level at the Galapagos Islands.

The islands were great. We saw many animals at a very close distance, most of which ignored us. Sea lions, sea turtles, giant torteses, pengins, flamingos, crabs, and iguanias were always close by.

We took many photographs and videos, which I will have to upload when I return to the states in a few days.

In the meantime, we have a whirlwind visit to Machu Picchu. For the rest of the trip, we are not staying in the same location twice.

Time to get back to my coca tea, which is supposed to help us adjust to the altitude.
