    (Note: I stayed at Hostal Iskay II, not the other, original Iskay) Right by the river which makes for a nice lullaby! The staff are very friendly and speak fluent English. Nice, functioning amenities. It's in the old "Inca" part of town which makes for an almost fairy tale start and end of the day.

    The main drawback is the food. The complementary breakfast buffet was cold (including the coffee!) by the time I got to it at 8 am. Though the stuff that was supposed to be cold (cereal, cream, juice, fruit) was fine and that's really breakfast enough for me (except for the coffee part). They have coffee/tea available 24/7 but the coffee is instant and the hot water caraffe was empty when I first tried it.

    A good portion of our day, starting at 3:30AM, was spent traveling from Quito to Cusco, via Lima. Fortunately we made it without any delays or issues. Once in Cusco we taxi'd to the Collectivo station for Ollantayambo. Despite what I read online prior to the trip, it IS possible to get a collectivo (shared van) direct from Cusco to Ollanta. The …

    ... immediately appealed to us. He was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and scholarly, and clearly loves his job. He takes some of the busiest days off--days when he could make a lot of money giving tours--in order to run around the ruins taking photos of solstice-related phenomena in the temples for his own personal collection, which he then showed to us. Edwin's two-hour personal tour was surprisingly inexpensive, and well worth it. There is almost no signage in ...

    ... Bridge a bridge and path that hangs impossibly to a sheer mountain cliff. The complexity of building it is just astounding. It’s just so lucky that the Spanish never found MP or it wouldn’t be as well preserved as it is. We learn that the Condor, Puma & Snake are the most important animals to the Inca’s. We headed down the mountain grabbed lunch and then jumped on the train back towards Cusco for a well deserved ...

    ... This was a steep enough climb to slow down Elaine and Tiffany, so they hiked with Kimberly and me. We had been the first group out of the valley, but it wasn't long before the other groups of hikers were passing us, too. The four of us couldn't figure out how they were all hiking so fast. And, of course, soon enough our camp crew (Pedro, Eduardo, and Fernando) were passing us as well (okay, they are professionals; they travel faster than us, but it was ...

    ... slugs of rum and then we pretty much ran down to the complex to watch the sun rise over the mountains and hit Machu Picchu. Again- indescribable. We met up with some of the Tucan group who didn't do the trail and had a 2 hour tour through the complex; then we were told we could do what we wished as long as we were at the meeting point in Aguascalientes by 16:00. Four of us stayed at Machu Picchu and walked out to the Inca bridge built into the side of a sheer cliff, then on the ...
