Machu Picchu Peru
In November of 2018 I was selected to participate in a tour of Lima and Machu Picchu with a small group of Travel Advisors from around the country. We started our adventure in Lima Peru, a beautiful historic city. November is the end of spring in Peru so we were treated to a multitude of beautiful foilage and flowers.
In Lima we visited the home of the Francisco Pizzaro Family who had lived in the home for 18 generations.
After 2 days in Lima we flew to the little town or village of Cuzco. The people were so fun, warm and welcoming. We were able to see their beautiful weaving of clothing, blankets and even bracelets. The villagers showed us how they farmed, still using oxen to pull the plow and how they made the clay bricks for their buildings. We were also taught a native dance and were dressed up in village clothing. While visiting Cuzco we took a tour of the local salt mines.
The day of our train ride up to the ruins of Machu Picchu dawned early. The views are magnificent, my pictures can't begin to do it justice. The air up so high is very thin so I was happy that I am in good shape for the walking and even the breathing.
I would love to help you plan your visit to Peru and Machu Picchu as it was an amazing adventure.
