The two of us on Day 3 standing at the ruins of Machu Picchu. Huaynapicchu in the background. P hiked that peak on Wednesday a.m., our last day on the mountain, while I waited at the base sitting on a rock reading & meditating, sick with fever, lung congestion, coughing and vertigo!
Our guide, Garry, took this photo as we toured the grounds of the ruins after the Hiram Bingham train trek from Cusco and the 13 switchback bus ride up to the Sanctuary Lodge on the mountain.

Below, as we flew towards Cusco from Lima, from the Taca airlines’ plane window, prior to landing. You can see the Rio Urubamba from my window snaking through the beauty of the peaks….

On the ground, driving by taxi next to the Rio Urubamba (Vilcanota River) on the way to the Aranwan spa, our first stop in the Sacred Valley.

Entering the sanctity of the spa wellness center, Aranwan.
