    Machu Pichu

    December 14, 2019 in Peru ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Heute wanderte ich den Machu Pichu rauf. Um halb 6 in der Früh ging’s den Berg hinauf, bis hin zum Inca Dorf und rauf auf den Wayna Pichu. Es war ziemlich anstrengend aber auch unglaublich beeindruckend. Obwohl es ein nebliger Tag war und man nicht so viel sehen konnte, hinterließ die Umgebung einen unvergesslichen Eindruck.Read more

    Angekommen in Machu Picchu Town

    November 28, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Sind gerade von unserem 4-tägigen Salkantay Trek in Machu Picchu Town angekommen. Morgen geht es dann hoch auf den Machu Picchu! Die letzten Tagen waren krass. Zum einen die unglaublichen Eindrücke mitten in den Anden, zum anderen die körperliche Herrausforderung. Aber dazu später mehr in einem detaillierten Review der letzten Tage. Haben es geschafft, alle wohlauf, sind fix und foxi und jetzt erstmal duschen, Muskeln entspannen und einfach nur lieeeeegen ;-)Read more

    Aguas Calientes

    November 14, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Aguas calientes ist ein super "härziges stettli". Versteckt am Fusse des Machu Picchus rund um den reissenden Fluss. Die Häuser sind eifach aufeinandergestapelte Wohnungen - wenn jemand bauen will, dann lieber auf ein Haus drauf als auf ein neues Grundstück :) sehr sehenswert :)

    Wenn die, dich ins Lokal zerrenden Mitarbeiter der Restaurants auf der Strasse ignoriert werden können hat man seehr sehr viel Freude am schönen Städchen :) Es ist allerdings ganz schön anstrengend die ganzen Restaurant Strassen entlang permanent kopfschüttelnd "non gracias" zu sagen ;P

    Machu Picchu Pueblo

    January 1, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    This is the town at the base of Machu Picchu where the trains arrive and the hotels and restaurants are located. Also know as Aguas Calientes for the hot springs/thermal baths nearby. The first pic is the main square. Note at left of center on the upper floor facade the Inca crosses. Also, yellow is the color of good luck at New year's here. And the statue is Pachacuteq, the most famous Incan king, also credited with starting Machu Picchu. SEC and is the view from my hotel room, followed by one of the streets in town. The last two are rock sculptures in town. The are many. These are Pachacuteq overlooking a stylized Machu Picchu and Pachamama (earth mother) embracing creation.Read more

    Machu Picchu to Cusco, Peru

    November 13, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Train ride From Machu Picchu to Cusco. Private Car to House, Casa Killaunu in the Sacred Valley.

    We had breakfast at the hotel, and they had a rather unique orange juice machine that fascinated Don. After breakfast, Lee, Judy and Don went looking for, and found, some empanadas that we could eat on the train taking us from Machu Picchu to Cusco that morning. Right near the food stall was another stall selling, among other things, wide brimmed hats. Lee bought a lovely mauve one with the Machu Picchu logo on the front.

    The train ride was a great adventure. After serving us some refreshments they put on a remarkable fashion show accompanied by some very lively music and a person dressed up like a Peruvian Shaman. The young lady who had been our server, modeled many different outfits, shawls and sweaters, and Lee bought a poncho sweater that could be changed to give at least 5 different styles. The young man modeled many scarves and sweaters and Don bought one of them. We had arranged to have a driver pick us up at the Cusco railway station and drive us directly to our 4-night house rental “Casa Killaunu” in The Sacred Valley near Ollantaytambo.
    We were met at the train station by our driver and van. When he turned off the main road, he had to constantly stop and ask for directions. The roads were very narrow and rough, making us think that there must be some mistake, but we finally found the house which turned out to be fantastic!

    Adam, the property manager, met us at the gate, let us in and explained the workings of the house. Don and Lee got the large master bedroom upstairs, Judy and Mike and Gary and Karina took the two very spacious double rooms on the main floor. When the trip was being planned, we were offered the services of a cook to come in to do meals for us including dinner the first night. There were 2 girls who came to prepare the food and the cook. The quality and size of the portions were over the top. And the price was exceptional value. Later into our dinner, there was a violent thunder, lightning and rainstorm and the power went out. We made do with our iPhone lights and a few candles. Unfortunately, after we all went to bed, the roof over Gary and Karina’s room leaked badly causing Karina’s bed to be soaked and made for some impromptu reorganizing of sleeping arrangements. Gary just moved the dry bed out of the way of the leak for Karina, and he slept on the couch in the living room. We were oblivious to all of this going on downstairs and only found out the next morning.

    Thal von Machu Pitchu

    May 10, 2018 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Heute haben wir eine Wanderung im Thal von Machu pitchu gemacht. Das Ziel war ein kleiner Wasserfall. Wir sind ca. 4 h unterwegs gewesen. Es wurde auch immer heißer auf dem Weg und deswegen ist es auch sehr anstrengend gewesen. Zum Mittag waren wir gemeinsam nochmal essen. Wir haben nochmal Alpaka 😍 gegessen. Das war sehr lecker. Um 15:00 Uhr sind wir dann in den zug nach Cusco gestiegen. 4 Stunden Zugfahrt und danach noch 40 Minuten mit dem Bus . Endlich Ankunft in Cusco.Read more
