My day in Peru

overcast 18 °C

I'll be leaving Argentina early this morning at around 7:00 am and will be heading to Peru and the flight will take about 4 hours long. Once I arrive at Peru the first thing like always, I'll be doing is going to my hotel. The hotel I'll be staying at is Hotel Villa Jazmin, a 4-star hotel that has free parking and free WIFI, no free breakfast but oh well, it's cheap at only costing $68 per night, so just like Argentina its very affordable. For breakfast I'm just going to go to a local shop and get a muffin with some milk and the begin my day in Peru. So today is going to be very different than all the other days because the only reason I'm here is to visit is Machu Picchu. as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu sits at the top of many bucket lists. Visitors are required to enter with an official tour guide in small groups of up to 16 people. So, I went with my group and the first thing you see is how beautiful Machu Picchu looks and how big it is, that is why this is going to be a full day thing. There are things like horseback riding (which is what I did) to things like a 4-day hike up the Inca trail. The horseback riding gives a tour of a place called the Cusco which kind of acts as the central part of Machu Picchu and what I mean by that is this is where all the locals are, and all the markets are. For lunch and dinner, I'm just going to eat some market food which just local food from Peru is. Honestly, it's hard to explain machu picchu my best advice is you have to go come here to really experience it, just reading about doesn't do justice to how amazing this place really is. My day is mainly just consisting of sightseeing and exploring Machu Picchu. Once I'm done here the day is pretty much over its already dark out, so I'll take a train back to my hotel and get ready for my last place in south America and last place of my world tour which is Brazil.
