Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 September
After the exertions of the Choquequirao trek, we were just happy to spend time relaxing around Cusco.
The city - at 3,350 meters above sea level, one of the highest in the world - is surrounded by mountains, and provided the perfect setting for the last couple of days of our brief visit to Peru.
A maze of charming narrow backstreets, bustling with hotels, hostels and travel agencies emerges onto a large and pretty square centred with an ornate fountain,
and bordered by buildings of beautiful architecture.
Happily for us, the square is also home to a couple of decent watering holes...
Rested, recovered and recuperated the time had sadly arrived for us to bid farewell to Peru and move on again.
