Peru-Beautiful Country

I love to travel. I went to Peru and had an awesome time. I live below sea level. Lima, Cuzco and Macchu Piccu is about 14,000 ft above sea level and i had trouble. I took altitude sickness meds but they caused my fingers and toes to tingle. I tried the coca leaves and tea but nothing helped.

Lima Beautiful city

Llama Farm

Macchu Piccu-we flew into Cuzco. took a flight, then 3 hr train ride, 1 hr bus ride and then the climb. They only allow a certain number to enter the site per day. Our weather was beautiful.

The oldest house in Peru. Dates back to the Maya time. This is an altar in the house. and there are real skulls. They raise guinea pigs to sell and eat.

@AthrillatheHunt i was there. it was amazing too. i wish we could have gone up the main temple.

@akindheart I’m sooo jelly. I made it to nasca. It was January and the roads to Cusco were flooded out . A helicopter from Lima would have been 350. I regret not spending the 350.

I've been there. You should have taken the coca tea, that would have changed everything for you.

@come2gether i did take the coco tea and chewed the leaves. still didn't help

Amazing to actually see Machu Picchu outside of a coffee label, beautiful place!

@BritishFailedAesthetic it sure is. we had beautiful weather too.
@akindheart Sounds like a fantastic holiday!
I wish I had learnt Spanish at school, South America has always held mysterious attraction.
akindheart · 61-69, F
@sunriselover i think we all have those attraction countries. i took 8 yrs of spanish but can't speak it.
That looks like an interesting and beautiful place

Lima is at sea level . Did you go to Pachakamic (temple of the sun God south of Lima - probably misspelled it ).
akindheart · 61-69, F
@AthrillatheHunt i know. that is a pic of the Pacific Ocean in Lima. but i had problems climbing.

@akindheart it’s weird how altitude affects us.

What a beautiful excursion!! Did the coca leaves have any effect on you?
akindheart · 61-69, F
@Quimliqer not at all. i chewed them several times too.
Quimliqer · 70-79, M
@akindheart I had a cousin that did the full climb and the guys doing the packing chewed them for strength. She tried them and said they gave her like a mild high.
akindheart · 61-69, F
@Quimliqer there is the Inca Trail but that takes a few days. I believe 4. just climbing up to the site did me in.
Nick1 · 61-69, M
Sounds fun if adjusted to high altitude.
akindheart · 61-69, F
@Nick1 it was climbing that was a problem. i had to take my time
Nick1 · 61-69, M
@akindheart Good that you were able to do it.
