Just when I began getting tired of Peru, we arrived in Cusco, and everything changed. Like Los Angeles and Tokyo, Lima is sprawling and unwieldy. But Cusco is walkable, charming, and not unlike some of my favorite European cities. I love it.
Today we’re going to Agua Calientes by train, which means another 6am wake up call so this update will be brief, like yesterday’s. I hope these pictures give you some idea of how lovely Cusco is and when we return from Machu Picchu on Wednesday, I hope to write a proper post.
