We fly on Land Airlines to Cusco (one of the 13 Departments (state) of Peru ( 13,000 feet altitude) and meet our tour guide Noel. He greets us with a cup coca tea as he warns us to drink or face altitude sickness. Then hands us a package of tissues as they were a spacial gift. We don’t realize how valuable these tissues are and what a gift this is until our experience with Peruvian bathrooms ( toilet paper is a luxury). We arrive at the Casa Andia Hotel (Inca Indian House) and have a wonderful lunch before heading to the center of town to take a tour of the Cathedral of Cusco.
