Arequipa to Cusco

It was the day of the exploding bathroom sinks. Our shoes and pants ended up soaked after an encounter with an Arequipa airport washroom sink. Later that day in Cusco we had another wet encounter in a restaurant bathroom with a faucet whose pressure was a little on the high side……

The flight into Cusco was spectacular! The mountains and then the approach to the city were like nothing I have ever seen. Landing was like threading the needle through magnificent mountains.

Once we landed we visited gold and textile factories and then had a magnificent lunch in a restaurant on the square. Our afternoon was spent exploring Cusco, it’s shops and parks and then we settled for an early night. This a beautiful, safe city. The altitude is about 11,000 feet and the city setting in a valley is stunning.
