Buenas tardes from Cusco,

The 2014 Machu Picchu trek has started! All members have arrived to the former capital of the Inca Empire…really excited to launch the first edition of this trek, where we will travel a combination of the Salkantay and Inca trails into the citadel of Machu Picchu.

We have just held our initial meeting and are now ready to hit the restaurant for dinner. We’re doing so on the early side to allow for an early bed time, well deserved after the many hours of international travel. Tomorrow, we’ll have a morning tour to discover the sights of this incredible city.  While exploring Cusco, we will also start acclimatizing since we’re about 10,000 ft above sea level.

Best regards from Peru, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s post!
