Lares Trek is Finished – Time to Check In

Hi All. It is Sunday night and it has been a crazy couple of days since I last checked in.

Me and my computer are again re-united. Peru is a wonderful place – people are so kinds. Hardest thing to get used to – no TP in the toilet – ANYWHERE!!

We arrived back in Cusco tonight after hiking the Lares Trek Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Saturday night we took a train to Agua Caliente, AKA Machu Picchu Town.  It is the small tourist town at the foot of Machu Picchu. This morning, we had a 4AM wakeup call to queue up for one of the first buses up to Machu Picchu in time for sunrise. I will give more info on these events in separate posts when I have a chance to review my pictures.

In my last post, I mentioned the women’s co-op we visited earlier in the week. Here are a few pics from that visit (you can click a picture to expand larger).
Afterwards we continued our tour around the Sacred Valley and came to realize that there are some spectacular ruins in the valley – not just at Machu Picchu. Here are a few pics from towns of Pisac and Ollantaytambo. Hope to post some Trek pictures tomorrow.
