I also just wanted to take a few minutes to update everyone on my recent travels to Peru. When everybody else from the program took a flight home to Buffalo, Claire and I continued our travels north to Peru for the ultimate adventure; Machu Picchu! It was so incredible and I highly encourage everybody to visit!
Our adventure from Chile to Peru began at 2:30 in the morning for our 6:00 AM flight to LIMA Peru. Following a 4 hour, international flight from Santiago Chile to LIMA Peru, we had to take a 2 hour flight to Cusco. We then had to take a 2 hour taxi from Cusco to Ollantaytambo. We spent 2 days in Ollantaytambo before taking a 2 hour train ride to the small town outside of Machu Picchu called, Aguas Calientes. We spent 2 days there, one of which was a day adventure to Machu Picchu. We then spent the next 3 days doing the same adventure in reverse.
