So around 4:00am we went to the gate of flight 75 from Lima to Cuzco Peru. I was eager to see Cuzco because I have herd it was like a metropolis that has stood still in the doom of time for the last 700 years. So we took our seats in the waiting area and then we all caught about an hours sleep then we bordered the small plane and off to Cuzco.
After about a 55 minuite flight we landed at the small airport and hair salon (Just joking about the hair salon) and that is how small this airport really is. So as the plane came to a stop we all stood up to gather our carry on bags and they opened the front and back doors to the plane. Within 2 minutes of standing up waiting desperately to get off this crowded plane, my lips became numb, my fingers started tingling, and my head felt so light and was quite dizzy. "I thought to myself,,,,,,Cool, I like this feeling"!
But my girlfriend quickly told me everything was perfectly fine and she looked at my hands and they had red dots all over them, so she suggested I take it very slowly. Lilly, my girl fiends sister-in-law
As we walked in it was a bit chilly and they quickly got our bags took us to the sofa and had us all hot coco tea from the coco leaves. Well it did not cure the altitude sickness but it sure is full of natural fiber, so future adventures "Be ware" of coco tea!
Well we went to our rooms and they were small but quaint enough for sleeping and what ever else a couple traveling to a romantic city might need a room for, but not to much on the luxury side I will have to admit. So we arrived at around 11:00am on the 19th and at 2:00pm we had a walking tour of the city with a guide named Freddy. My girlfriend by the way is from that part of the world so she is used to the high altitudes
