Day Three – Cusco, Peru 12-01-2014

Day 3, early morning start – out to the airport, window seats secured, a flight over mountaintops and sacred valleys – Lima to Cusco. Joined by my compatriot Justin we headed into the Inca heartlands. A big jump in altitude sea level to 3400 metres, and a climb up to the hilltop site of Saksaywaman (at 3700m) leaves us both exhausted. Just time to check out this cultural performance in town before an early night…
