10Trip End Dec 31, 2005
One of the perks of hiking into Machu Picchu, rather than taking the traimn, is being able to send 2 hours in the city before the Touristas arrive. We got a prvate tour with plenty of hoto ops sand people. We got to spend the entire day there, drinks before the train...and back to Cuzco by 9pm. What an amazing place to experience in person
Back in Cuzco after our trek. We met our Inca Trail group out for drinks to say goodbye to some new and amazing friends.
We spent our last day in Cuzco hanging out with Sean and Princess Fleur from New Zealand...having drinks all day and playing Pictionary in our favorite cafe. They are the southern hemisphere version of us. Dating for 8 years, still not married. We all made a bet together. Whoever goes first, the other couple has to start the dreaded conga line at the wedding.
We are leaving tomorrow for the Amazon. (Dec 20th) Change it up a little. We had to abandon our ambitious plans of entering as the first ever tour into the virgin jungle. The weather is a little moody there right now and they couldn't guarantee us 6 days. Plane maybe couldn't fly out and we'd have to take the slow boat to China you may say to some way off town even further out and who knows when we would have gotten back. Sorry, not that adventurous. We have a beach to hit soon that nothing can keep us from after that hike!
