We were able to spend the rest of the trip learning more about Peru and it's culture. That Wednesday we flew from Lima to Cusco in the Andes. We had a city tour of the cathedral and an Incan temple that the Spanish turned into a Catholic church. As well as a bus tour into nearby Saqsaywaman archelogocial park to see three Incan ruins.
Thursday we took a tour of The Sacred Valley. We got to go to three Incan ruins and did a lot of hiking and stairs. There were amazing views. The Andes are different than any other mountains I have ever seen - very sheer.
The last day we took the train from Cusco to Machu Picchu. It was incredible. Never even imagined I would visit there. It hard to capture how tall and sheer the mountains are where it is situated. It was an amazing trip and a wonderful team to share it with!
