2019 TAPS Team Explores Cusco!

Hola friends, family and loved ones!

We had a great day in Cusco checking out the sights and sounds of the city. We visited several significant Inca ruins and started to learn about their culture and history. Look at the incredible stone work on the walls. Alpacas 🦙 grazed the temple grounds.

We had fun watching a parade in the central square. Hundreds of people were participating in the historic celebration. We capped off the day with a tour of the local market. Colorful to say the least!

The Team is doing well and looking forward to touring the Sacred Valley tomorrow.
