I haven’t written in a week, but that’s not because nothing’s been happening. True, we haven’t really done anything in Cusco, per se, but we have been busy. Christmas Eve was spent perusing Cusco’s Annual Crafts Fair and then going to Christmas Eve Mass with a Peruvian dentist we met at our hostel. On Christmas, Joylani relapsed and we spent the night at the hospital where Joylani had an IV replenish her fluids all night. We took it easy on the 26th and then picked my little brother Alex up from the airport on the morning of the 27th. The last four days have been just catching up with him, showing him around town, hiking the surrounding area, preparing for our upcoming trek, and trying not to get sick…again. Tomorrow, we embark on a 4-day trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
