July 20, 2016 | Shortly after arriving in Peru, we hiked up steep cobblestone streets to explore the nooks and crannies of Cusco. 


Our time in Cusco was much too brief, but we made the most of it by venturing through winding roads and sprawling plazas, stopping for a moment whenever we saw something of interest or simply needed to catch our breath (altitude: ~11,000 ft).

We enjoyed a delicious lunch in a tiny restaurant, walked around a few of the main downtown plazas, and met up with one of Jenni’s high school friends who has been living in Cusco. The next morning, we hopped on a train to Aguas Calientes, which is home to the beautiful Machu Picchu!
