IMG Guide Kelly Ryan checked in from Peru and reports that the team had a great day touring the local Inca sites and some open air markets in Cuzco. They took particular interest in the layers of history that are literally built on top of each other. Inca stone walls with Spanish mortared walls as the second story and the modern addition of electricity.
The local cuisine they dined on featured several of the thousands of different types of potatoes that grow in Peru. Carb. loading at it’s finest!
They’ll hit the trail today and make their way to their first tent camp at 11,800ft.
All is well.
