We had the most amazing time in Peru! We started our trip in Cusco where we stayed at the Belmond Monestario- an old monastery which was converted into a beautiful hotel. We spent our first day acclimating to the altitude. visiting Saqsaywaman and walking around town gasping giddily at baby alpacas. The altitude is serious business people! Weird dreams and nighttime nausea kept me up often in the middle of the night. It was so strange! Salt Lake ain't got nothin on Cusco ;)
I hadn't heard of Saqsaywaman before our trip, but it ended up being one of the highlights for me! The ruins are incredible.
