Cusco

We made it to Cusco!  The bumpy overnight bus wasn’t the most pleasant of rides, and the elevation has taken some getting used to (a little more than 10,000 feet here), but we’re pretty happy to be here!  We spent one night in a hostel high up in the San Blas neighborhood, which gave us an opportunity for some amazing views (see below).  Now, we’re settled into the dorm room at the South American Explorer’s clubhouse.  We’re volunteering here for about a week, helping them run their events (lectures, pub quizzes, hikes, etc) in exchange for some cheap accommodation and free lunch!  Once again, it’s nice to let our belongings out of their backpack-cage for a little while, and feel like we belong somewhere.
