Replica Iron Man Costume

Cusco Machu Picchu - Arequipa

Arrive in Cuzco at sunrise, and the first test: climbing the hills the city with our backpacks, has more than 3000 meters!
Cusco is the ancient Inca capital, what we see around the city: old doors, old walls ... But the Spaniards have also left their legacy, with many cathedrals.
We arrived a week before the feast of the Sun, a large celebration or Peruvian across the country come to meet. Suddenly, we were treated to many fashion shows each day (schools, universities, military), probably in anticipation of the big day.

after a visit to Machu Picchu (section aside), we explored the valley of the Incas: many cities in and around Cusco, the Inca ruins of rich: Pisac and Ollantaytambo, which keeps the Inca city plan, which the temple has not been completely destroyed because it was not finished!



Finally, it was distant from the center of Cusco to the ruins of Tambomachay, Puka-Pukara and Sacsahuaman.

We decide to leave before the feast of the Sun, the city is already becoming crowded with tourists. So we are in the direction of Bolivia and La Paz.
