Day 6 - Cuzco and the Sacred Valley

The Day of allocating and rest

sunny 80 °F

Stories and Experience:
We made it to the Sacred Valley in Peru. This is the highest altitude I’ve ever been. The early fight was quick. The ticket told us that the place would be boarding at 6:30 AM for a flight that leaves at 7:30 AM. The only thing we can make of this is they needed to account for “Latin Time” I have found over the years if you want a Latin person to be on time, tell them 1hr before the real time. I know, it not true in some and rare cases.

What To Do:
Rest today. We are at 8,000 feet and I’m feeling the effect of the altitude.

Recommendation:
Make the travel to the Sacred Valley before. We got a local van/bus, which cost $35 dollars compare, to the $100 for the big tourist bus. I guess you have to ask yourself for the difference do I want to be in a Van cramped full of people or have a m:ore roomer hour ride. Either way the drive is not for the faint of heart.

Gear and Advise:
Have thing pack tight and at the ready. The big bags get toss around. After today, I would have brought a package/luggage like the Osprey has. I seen other use these type and it seem to work better.

Ending notes:
Well it happy hour and I hoping to do some editing and post some pictures. Mostly rest!
