Default I just got my pictures back from my Peru trip

Hey guys. I just wanted to know what everyone thinks of them. I used Quentin's Canon AE-1 and it took some great pictures. I just wish I had a better scanner.













Some hippy (me) and my friend, Sebastian

Thanks for the comments, guys. I was so happy that the pics came out well.
Machu Picchu was even more amazing in person tho. I hope to go back again. The whole trip was amazing. Wasn't too expensive either. Because my friend (in the pic) has grandparents in Peru, we were able to stay with them. Only 3 nights we were in hotels, and that was a total of $60 bucks for me.
My friend wants to go back again but I don't have enough money for the plane ticket now. Oh well.

We were at Machu Picchu for 2 days. We were in Cusco for about 2 days and then stayed in Lima for about 8 or 9 days. We were in Peru for 12 or 13 days total.
It was just amazing. It's something most people do not get to do, especially at such at my age and without other adults and just with my best friend.

Very nice. Sounds like you had a blast. I'm _really_ hoping to do some traveling w/ my GF at some point. Were thinking about chille, but we don't know much aobut it. How'd you go about finding places and stuff to do?

Outstanding photos man and more importantly, great decision on your destination. You went to a real thinking-persons location. I am sure most people don't even know where Peru is let alone Incas. Anyway, how much was your flight and how difficult getting transportation into the mountains?

The transportation wasn't bad. The flight from Washington, DC to Lima and back was about $700. We flew from Lima to Cusco on a local airline so it was about $150. To get to Machu Picchu, we took a train from Cusco which was about $75 round trip. The only other way to get there is to take a helicopter which from what I hear isn't too expensive. It is no problem getting the train tickets into the mountains. Our only problem was that we accidentally got the return trip a day late so had to get a different train back which costed us a little more.

My friend was born is Peru so he still has family there so thats how we found stuff to do. It isn't hard to find stuff tho. Usually there are many websites with information. That's how we found our hotels. We also picked up a traveler's book that has just about everything to do in the major cities and main attractions which helped a lot too. I just hope that I can travel more in the future. I recommend Peru for anyone that is thinking about traveling.

Machu Picchu is about 8000 or 9000 feet and Cusco is well above 10000 feet so the air was pretty thin. I had more of a problem in Cusco but was fine after being there for a few hours.

It was May when I went so it was late Fall there so there were not many hot latino babes in skimpy bikinis.. haha. That is why my friend and I want to go back again when it is summer there. lol. It was only in the 60s and lower 70s while I was there so a little cold for babes in bikinis.

There are a couple more ways to get there trekking the inca trail and kayaking or rafting the Urubamba river will both get you to Machu Pichu or Agua Calientes.

I trekked the Inca trail to Machu Pichu last year, during the end of June. It was amazing, the trek to Machu Pichu was incredible and in my opinion is THE way to get there. My first glimpse of Machu Pichu was looking through the sun gate down on the ruins. Incredible! The trek was 5 days and 4 nights through the Andes, we went over 14,000ft passes, with peaks of over 20,000 to our sides. Incredible place. Cusco is also very cool, it is at 12,000ft, very high city.

Sounds like your trip was amazing, thanks for sharing your pictures, they brought back alot of great memories.

Oh yeah. I had forgotten about the Incan Trail. I would love to do that. If I ever go back, that will be my means of transportation. How long were you at Agua Calientes and Cusco?

I was in Cusco for 2 days before heading to the Inca trail, then a day and half afterwards. I was in Agua Calientes for about 2 days. Cool places huh Did you get to go to Saxyhuaman when in Cusco? I saw it twice while there, 2nd time was for the inti raymi festival. Really cool!

Unfortunately, I didn't get to do much in Cusco. When we first flew in, the altitude was a bit much and was really tired so I ended up sleeping half of the day. Walked around the square at night but that was about it. When I came back, I didn't arrive until about 7:30 and had to fly back to Lima the next morning so I didn't see much then either.

It was really interesting that the first day we were there, about 21 Latin American presidents were staying about 2 blocks from us for some summit. And that night there was a really big teacher protest outside my hostal and a lot of the city was blocked off. I did get to go to the English pub that is in the square. Haha.
I wish I could have seen more in Cusco tho. And I'll agree, they are very cool places.

Sweet man, I fully intend to go down there someday. I want to try and drive though. So I'm gonna have to wait a few years and find some other crazy mofos. I'll hopefully be going to China next year though. You travel a lot or is this a one time deal?
