Here is a quick summary of my trip:
My first day was in Miraflores, an uptown district of Lima, the capital of Peru. I was thrilled right from day one, because this whole trip was such a spontaneous one!
Arequipa is an artist town. I was pulled into one Christian rock show and then several people were simply jamming together with guitars, flutes, drums and other instruments at the central Plaza.
I spent the next 2 days staying with Quechuan villagers on islands in lake Titicaca, the highest inhabitated lake in the world.
If you haven’t been to Machu Picchu, what did you do in Peru?
The Sacred Valley of the Incas has several ruins and wonderful architectural and historical sites.
Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incas, is very touristy city. This was my last night in the interior of Peru and I was so disappointed to go back.
I spent my last day in the colonial quarters of Lima before heading back to Toronto.
Detailed posts on each of these places, and many more will follow over next few weeks. Hopefully I am able to maintain blogging pace. Thanks for your patience 🙂
