Author Julia Durango has a session with the pre-K students.
Heading out on the trail. My horse was Rayo, with Julia riding Hurricane. Tour by www.cuscoforyou.com; our guide Adriana was terrific.
We rode a winding mountain trail to the dramatic salt pools, where salt has been harvested by families since pre-Inca times.
With Bryan and Gabriel, our hosts at the Green House B&B. And Paco, on Gabriel’s lap, and Laika.
Back in Lima, day of departure:
Our last meal at Las Tejas in Miraflores included famous Peruvian dishes like choclo, giant corn…
…and anticuchos, beef heart on skewers. One of my favorite dishes on the trip.
One final photo from Machu Picchu (which is now my laptop’s background):
(with thanks to the anonymous young man from Korea with whom we took turns exchanging cameras and snapping pics. Hurrah for tourism!)
