Two 65-year-olds looking for Adventure! in Peru
Next stop . . . LIMA!
Manco Multi-Sport combined with Amazon Explorer -- 16 days of non-stop adventure!
Next stop: LIMA!
With just our carry-on suitcases and small backpacks, we are ready for our 17-day Peruvian adventure to begin!
We're in Starting Gate . . . and we're off!
Even at the departure gate for the Cusco flight, we know this will be a very different trip. It looks like a gathering of the United Nations with people and languages from all over the world.
We are met in Cusco by not one, not two, but THREE people to help us on our way to our Adventure-Life in Peru. There is a luggage porter, a driver, and …
Cusco on Palm Sunday
To be in this predominantly Catholic country during Easter week proves to be an unexpected delight.
We join the throngs to watch the big parade in the central plaza. Vendors are selling palms with crosses attached. It is the perfect venue for serious people watching and photographing women in their many styles of hats!
After the parade, we …
Rafting the Urubama River
Today we have FOUR people looking after us, ensuring our safety and enjoyment of the activities in store; our guide, Juan; a van driver; Willy, the rafting guide; and Rubio, our safety guide in his kayak (just in case we fall out of the raft :-) The rainy season has just ended thus the river is running high and fast and muddy. Lots of hoots and …
Biking at 12,000 + feet
Leaving Cusco with a van loaded with bikes. There is the van driver, of course, a bike guide/mechanic, our chef for the next few days, and Juan. We are definitely being well taken care of. The bike mechanic is a welcome part of the team as KT has two breakdowns along the route.
On the way, we stop at Chinchero, a splendid example of Inca …
Hiking Tres Cruses
We camped overnight at a small village at the base of the trail we will hike today. The sounds of the day beginning are what awakens us from a great night's sleep -- the braying of a donkey, chickens crowing, sheep bleating, birds chirping. So much nicer than an alarm clock!
Juan and we hit the trail after breakfast, carrying only our day …
Down, down, down we go . . .
After breakfast, Juan and we tour the Inca ruins just below our campsite. The engineering of the area's water alone it a thing to behold.
And now we begin our downward climb to the Sacred Valley. 2,000 feet down and maybe 500 feet forward. The Inca builders of this trail didn't have the concept of ''gradual descent.'' Whew, I have never been …
It doesn't matter how many photographs of this place you may have seen, you MUST see it in person -- breathtaking! Again, I could write a book about the gradeur, the history, the sights, the vastness, the construction. WOW! Enough of my commentary . . . come see it for yourself!!
On the way to Puno and Lake Titicaca
A bus ride takes us from the bustling Cusco to the vast high plains. Imagine Kansas with high snowcapped mountains in the distance. There are large herds of sheep, alpaca, llamas and cattle. We remind ourselves that everything on these ranches/farms is done by hand -- nothing is mechanized.
Several stops along the way to see Inca ruins, a …
