Last morning in Cusco
Peru trip 2010! Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and more
We had said goodbye to Ayul the night before and he was off to see his family for a day off before the work week started again for him. I wondered what life would be like as a guide. He said that he loved his profession (he had a bachelor's and master's degree in it!) and could not wish for a better job, but I thought that it had to get hard not seeing your family for days at a time. Ayul seemed to make family where ever he went! He really made the trip for us!
Our driver and escort to the airport arrived. They helped us check in and we shared a private van to the airport with another couple who was just leaving Cusco to continue their adventure in the Amazon. We were jealous. Next year maybe?!
