I arrived in Cusco on the 8 August with a one night stop over in Lima.

Cusco sits at a daunting altitude of 3,400m. I spent my first day acclimatising to the high altitude. It`s amazing how quickly our bodies can adapt to such an extreme change. I still get puffed every now and then when I walk up stairs but apart from that I`m fine.

Since arriving in Cusco I`ve found a room to rent with a Peruvian family, started work at the orphanage and also joined a group for a four day tour of the Sacred Valley.

The pics in this entry are from the tour of the Sacred Valley. In the weeks to come I will also update my blog with pics of my new home, common scenes around Cusco and of course the orphanage.
