We are here at an altitude of over 11,000 feet. We adjusted fairly well with only mild fatigue and headache. We are heading to Machu Picchu today and will not have the computer with us for three days.
This is the former capital of the Incas. As part of converting the indigenous to Catholicism, the Spanish destroyed all of the Inca treasures and symbols. As a result all that is left of their ancient culture is the impressive stone architecture. And the people of course.
