Greetings from Cusco! The 2019 TAPS Machu Picchu Expedition is off to a great start. In spite of a number of flight delays, the Team did all eventually arrive and we took advantage of the great weather to enjoy Plaza de Armas, the main square of Cusco.
We had some empanadas for lunch before sitting down for an orientation briefing and gear check. Cusco has many official historic sights but one of our favorite things to do here is to simply wander the quaint streets — so that’s what we did on our way to dinner.
We are now absolutely exhausted from the long travel day and are headed for bed.
We will report back to you tomorrow, and (technology permitting) every day of the trip, so check back and follow our adventure!
