Anniversary

It was 2 years ago today that we left Vancouver, BC to head north to Inuvik. Since then we have been in 16 countries and made it to Ushuaia and back to the north of Peru.




It was also 18 years ago today we got married!! Wow we looked young!

Wow ... looks like you hit GREAT weather in Cuzco. Visited there about 7 years ago and was amazed at how much I liked the City.

Congrats on accomplishing so much on your ride. Very inspiring. Love the wedding pic! I imagine any couple that can travel together through 16 countries for 2 years and still be together - has a relationship that will make it forever!

So true! I think if you can make it a year on the road together you can make it thru anything.

Cusco

We decided to take a tour around the area on the F 800. We rode up to the Jesus Blanco at the top of the hill and this also gave us a good view of the Saqsaywaman or Sacsayhuaman archeological sight and well as several smaller sights just off the 3S.

Saqsaywaman

Saqsaywaman was a fortress that because of its position on the steep slope it only needed defensive walls on one side. This wall is amazing with huge stones that are more than 300 tonnes and are fitted without mortar.

Today we were up at 500 am to catch a taxi the 25 min to the train station at Poroy. The train we had was a vista dome and so are mostly widows and a glass roof.

It is an almost 4 hour trip to go 100 km on this narrow (3 ft wide) gauge rail. The scenery was stunning.

The Inca trail!

In one section they do a zigzag maneuver down the mountain to drop 40 m in a very short distance.

We sat with a very nice couple Mike and Lynn from southern Ontario.

Machu Picchu

Arriving in the town we wandered to the main street and found a hotel for the next 2 nights. Then it was time for some souvenir shopping and a beer on the balcony to people watch. We were waiting on Steve the tiger, who was riding up the back way to the hydroelectric dam (200 km) to catch the train from there. We finally heard from him at 620. He did make the last train at 430, but he had had a crash on the way and was in a lot of pain from his ribs, but nothing seems broken except his bike mirror.
