Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel
Read my review - 4/5 stars

Flag of Peru  ,
Saturday, September 22, 2012

Oh my goodness! A 5 star hotel! With marble bath, jacuzzi tub, massage shower, chandelier in the bedroom, real linens on the bed, a safe in the closet, robes (like I need 2). I just ordered room service! Holy Cow! Real food! They have real laundry service. It is priced in American dollars (and it is expensive in American dollars). But I'll bet it is washed in a machine! They even offer dry cleaning. What?

People speak English here. It is gorgeous. Antique furniture. And room service that arrived in fifteen minutes. Grilled chicken sandwich with avocado, coke zero and vanilla ice cream. Oh my goodness. That was awesome. I feel so normal all of a sudden.

I have a complete day to myself. It is 11:15 in the morning. I'm going to shower, change clothes, take a nap, and go for a manicure, pedicure, and maybe even a massage in a little while. Feeling better. But, still using only one robe.

I think this is where it is going to get expensive, well, more expensive, but at least I'm spending it on me now. I certainly didn't mind spending it on the girls, but I don't mind splurging on myself for a little while now.

Spent the rest of the day resting. Got a pedicure (sort of-Peru style), then slept forever. Woke up, emailed a couple of people (feeling really lonely here), watched TV (Spanish is getting pretty good), talked to Brian and Audra on Face Time and went back to sleep.

Boy did I need this day! It is hard doing this alone. I just wasn't meant to be alone. I know I have always been this strong, tough person, but I. Think the wind has been knocked out of me and I just can't seem to breathe like I used to.

I thought that seeing the world would help, it its really empty seeing it by yourself. Not so sure about doing this again. The world is so full of amazing people and things to see. It's just pretty empty when you are seeing it all by yourself. Takes the joy out of
