Cusco

We spent a few days in Cusco before and after our trip to Machu Picchu. And in case you're wondering how we did Machu Picchu, we ordered a taxi to take us to Ollantaytambo where we caught the train to Aguas Callientes, spent one night there and woke up at 5am to head up to Machu Picchu.

Shopping

You can definitely get carried away here
