We experienced the first hitch in our make-it-up-as-we-go along approach. Usually, we pick out a couple places on our bus trip to the next town. We look for places that seem to have the best combination of value, location, and recommendations. For the most part, they have turned out okay....sometimes a little pricier than we would like, sometime a little grungier (or noisier or darker or smaller)....and sometimes they even exceed our expectations!
Well, today for the very first time we were unable to stay at the first place we randomly showed up at
In retrospect, I figure the first place probably was actually $14 dollars nicer, but I am a woman of budget and principal, if not scrupulous preparation. : )
But all in all, the ling bus trip and logistics are well worth it. Cusco is amazing!!! Red tile roofs, one-lane cobbled streets, 16th century churches, quiet colonial courtyards, original Incan stonework everywhere, flowery plazas, in a stunning mountain setting.
