Peru in Review: Cusco and Machu Picchu

(After my Nikon was stolen my lowly hiptop stepped up and saved the day; unfortunately I couldn’t get any pictures off of it until I got back to Canada, so here they are…)

This is downtown Cusco, as seen from my 5th-floor “suite” at the Savoy Hotel. The large building across the street is the arts and crafts outlet.

If you head northwest to the central plaza, you’ll find all manner of tourist activities, like the opportunity to pet this baby llama… For a price.

Who could resist a restaurant with a guy in a chicken outfit as its doorman? Not me…

More photographic evidence of yours truly at Machu Picchu

… And the mosquito bites I got there that flared up a couple of days later.

    Maybe you can post some photos (free of copyright) about the city of Cuzco since my archive is low on them.

  2. Hi Bianca,

    Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, these photos are all I have, as my camera was stolen in big, bad Lima.

    Bianca, if you need some pictures of Cusco or Machu Picchu let me know. I am sure we can work something out.

    Sorry for your stolen camera Andrew!

  4. Great photos, Andre!

    You clearly had access to Machu Picchu before the droves of tourists arrived on their day pass, not knowing any better—like me…

    Where’d you stay? The Santuary Lodge Hotel?
