LIM TO CUS
Upon arrival to Cusco, a few hours later I felt the elevation and was not feeling well. I was short of breathe and was drowsy. Wow I had never felt this way before so it was foreign to me. Our ride, which was arranged by our volunteer organization, took us to our homestay where we would be staying during our time in Cusco. Once we arrived to their home we met the family and they directed us for some cocoa tea as they expected many of the travelers would be feel the affects of the elevation. We took it easy and laid low for the first night.
The next day we had a few hours before we had to go to the volunteer orientation. We walked around town to explore downtown Cusco. A great colonial city. I loved it!
