We are back from our adventures in the jungle and what a great time we had. We stayed in bamboo huts with no electricity and ate many traditional dishes which were for the most part very good. Some of the wildlife we encountered include caymens, giant otters, macaws, cakiberas, a snake, monkeys, numerous birds and crazy looking insects. We took alot of pictures that we can share upon our return.
We are now in Cusco, the ancient Inca capital. We are all adjusting to the altitude change fairly well, we could feel it yesterday but mildly. Today, we donīt really feel it at all. We had a day tour of the sacred valley of the incas today which included stops at numerous archeological sites which were pretty amazing. We are learning lots about the ancient people of the inca. Tomorrow we start our trek on the Inca trail towards Machu Pichu. On that note, I need to go back and pack as we leave at 6 tomorrow morning. I am very excited and canīt wait to get going. I will post another update upon our return from trekking either Sunday or Monday. Until then Go Oilers!!!!!
