Back from Peru & Bolivia

Thanks for everyone's tips, our trip to Peru was just fabulous! I want to post some highlights now, then elaborate on a trip report later. But if anyone has any questions in the meantime, I can try to help answer them.

Sacred Valley: My friends & I absolutely loved K'uychi Rumi!! Claudia & Carlos are the most wonderful people! Our bungalow was quite comfy and Claudia insisted we have a fire in the fireplace every night. She also helped us arrange activities for this portion of the trip, as well as MP, which moved (for the most part), seamlessly. One of the highlights was a cooking class with Pio from el Huacatay in Urubamba. What fun! His food & presentation is outstanding and he & his wife Iris could not be any nicer.

MP: What more can I say about MP? It is more spectacular than I even imagined. It was even more dramatic because it was raining very early, then cleared up as we headed to the viewpoints. The clouds parted to reveal the most amazing sight.

Manu Nature Tours: We took a 4 day/3 night tour with this company to the Cultural Zone of Manu National Park. There were 2 long days of travel, but the end result was worth it. Their Cloud Forest Lodge is superb and so comfortable that we didn't want to leave. Keep in mind this area is not outwardly swarming with animals like Costa Rica, but when the monkeys and birds came around, it was sensational.

Lake Titicaca: After traveling all day from Cuzco to Puno by bus, we traveled by land the following day to the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca. We spent the night at La Estancia Ecolodge on Sun Island, which was magnificent. The Lodge was comfortable, in beautiful surroundings and serene. The sunrise & sunset was amazing. Wish we could have stayed here longer.
