Machu Picchu Monday

It’s finally the trip! We left Las Vegas Tuesday on the 1:30 am red-eye flight to Panama. It’s not much for getting restful sleep, but it’s less than 12 hours, so quick. The airport isn’t very busy at that hour, so things move along fairly well, and Las Vegas may be the most efficient airport in the world anyway.

We arrived in Lima, and spent the afternoon resting until our group arrived at 11:45 pm. After meeting them, we all headed for bed.

On Wednesday, we flew to Cuzco on separate flights, and then connected in front of the airport. We then jumped into our rented van, and headed for Urubamba, where we would spend the next two nights at the Tierra Viva Lodge, a rather nice spot outside of the city, and very quiet and peaceful. Surrounded by the steep mountains above, it’s truly breathtaking.

We ate both nights at the restaurant, and the food was just marvelous. (To be continued…)
