Peru and the Inka Trail - The Trailhead

After flying into Lima, we were really happy to get to Cusco. We had to stay in Cusco for two days before we started to hike on the Inka Trail. Cusco is about 11,200 feet high and staying here helps acclimatize trekkers before they start out on the trail. This picture is the Plaza De Armas (basically the town center), a fountain and the La Compana church. It was a really pretty town which was warm and inviting.
