On our third and final day in Cusco we ventured outside the city. We grabbed a taxi and made our way to Sacsayhuaman, amazing Inca ruins just outside Cusco. A large area containing some of the largest and most impressive stones tightly fit together. We made our way through a pitch black winding cave, and the kids slid down a huge rock slide worn smooth by centuries of bottoms.
After an incredible day at Machu Picchu, we arrived in Cusco late. We were now staying at a higher elevation than we had so far, and it was cold. We found our guesthouse amid the narrow cobblestone streets of the San Blas neighborhood and went to sleep. The next two days we were to explore Cusco and the area. Hubby wasn’t feeling well, and the next morning he was in no condition to leave our room. Our first victim of Inca’s revenge so to speak. So the kids and I left Michael in bed to explore the city.
