to my surprise Machu Picchu is surrounded by the jungle, temperate rainforest!...amazing biodiversity and huge steep mountains covered in green velevet- I was not expecting this since everyone only talks about the ruins....but what a treat!
Went to the thermal springs in Peru....not really sure why though...they were hot but not the cleanest ....it was pouring rain which made it fun but could have skipped it in the long run!
Ran into a gal from my horseback riding trip - shes a manger of a hotel in Aquas Calientes- seriously her name is MILLY
"Fee first met Milly in a bar in Peru" -phish
We met up later that evening at her hotel and I was greeted with Sangria and local food, guacamole and cheese dippers- yum!!!
But most of all the conversation was great!!
Milly is wonderful and I know our paths will cross again someday, hopefully for her, in the U.S.
Peruvians are beautiful people. They remind me a great deal of Tibetans in so many ways- bright and colorful- always willing to help. timid at first and then a smile cures all!
I have really enjoyed Peru, the little time I have spent here... I am back to Cusco on the public bus )love local buses), but first stopping in Pisqa- the adorable town I had not explored enough on the way to Machu Picchu to shop!
Tomorrow is THANKSGIVING.... wishing you all a beautiful day surrounded by family and freinds!
