Location: Cuzco

  Author: Jonathan Location: Cuzco Today (all 48 hours included) was by far full of its highs and lows. We touched down in Lima around 5 and quickly boarded our next flight to Cuzco. Flying needless to say took a lot out of us as nobody slept comfortably. Regardless we arrived at Cuzco, a breathtaking city. Form its amazing views to the elevation of 11,000 feet and upwards it can leave you speechless. With countless flights of stairs behind us, we left our belongings at the hostel and proceeded to desayuno (breakfast). We where served a varying assortment of juices and spreads for our oddly rectangle shaped toast. Soon afterwards we climbed back to our hostel where we revived our generous ration of water. We were allowed to rest before embarking on the next part of the day. Our tour guides showed us around their temples and we listened to a brief history on Inca religion. Walking back up winding sideways and side walks we returned to our leaders introduction to the Lifeworks program. This however was a surprise as I had no idea any itinerary had existed prior to this briefing. All in all, I should save room for my other colleagues to go on about the wonders in store for us during this program. Shortly afterward we where given time to freshen up and briskly proceeded to dinner. I being the more adventurous of sorts ate a dish called ‚Äústicky chicken.” Despite the name it was pretty normal as far as chicken goes. That about sums up the maority of our first day.
