It feels like much more than seven days have passed since the last Photo of the Week! That might have something to do with the face that in that time span we’ve explored Cusco, conquered the famed Inca Trail, and spent a night recovering in Aguas Calientes.
You might be surprised not to see any photos of the Machu Picchu postcard view. On the fourth day of the Inca Trail we arrived at the site to a thick white fog that clung stubbornly around the ancient city. I actually took this turn of luck surprisingly well — I guess it’s hard to be disappointed when you’ve just accomplished such a pride-inducing physical feat, and checked something off your bucket list to boot.
The next week will bring us down to Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, and across to Arequipa, Peru’s second largest city.
