I think the planning for this day was faulty. Globus should have immediately bused us to Sacred Valley and our hotel, which are at 9,000 feet and 8,000 feet, respectively. Instead, they made us walk through churches and museums in Cuzco, sometimes uphill, with a guide that walked much to quickly. Everyone made it, but some of us only barely. I now have a slight headache and am really exhausted. In protest I'll just show one piece of art from Quorikancha, or the Sun Temple:
We had an excellent "family" lunch, and here are a few more photos of my tour friends. Maybe I'll get them all in before it's over. Here, Sally from Texas:
We then made a few stops for shopping in Sacred Valley, ending up at the Casa Andina Private Collection in the valley. This chain is excellent with nicely designed rooms and good food. Tomorrow, Machu Picchu.
