Among the most beautiful landscapes I have ever meet, the mountains between Cusco and Machu Picchu are on my top list. Places like this picture only who walk miles away with altitude ranging from 2 to 4.6 meters high can appreciate. In the up’s and downs It took my breath away for 2 reasons: beauty and the air missing.

After almost 3 days walking and no shower at all, we found a waterfall with hot volcanic water. Perfect to relax and renew our energies, we still had 2 days ahead of us. In the pic, the Peruvian guide who led the way, he does it every week.

The most important tip in Peru is: haggle! When taking a taxi, choosing a package tour, going shopping and eating out. They start with prices for European tourists and then ask how much you want to pay. I did not think the weather would change so suddenly, neither that the sun would be so hot this time of the year (May).

Inca trail is One of the most amazing things I have ever done. I overcame my limits and experienced what had never crossed my mind. I was in excellent shape, a little afraid of getting sick because of the sudden changes of temperature, but everything was fine. I thought I would lose weight but I burned all the calories from the Peruvian food – which I just loved. The cook who took part in the trail with us was a very imaginative chef.

Ruins next to Cusco, in the villages of PISAQ, OLLANTAYTAMBO and CHINCHERO. It is amusing how everything is related and sacred, and how they see triangles in everything.
