2 KISS ME, LYNN Photos From Peru–Cusco!

We flew from Lima to Cusco.

Cusco was completely different from Lima, mainly because there was SUNSHINE instead of 100% cloud cover, the traffic was much more reasonable, and the city matched our expectations of what Peru would look like!

We stayed at the Picoaga Hotel, with its beautiful courtyard and walkways overlooking the courtyard.  This is where Alex and Lynn danced.

This is the corner room where Lynn and Sharon stayed, on the second floor.

That evening, we went to the Museo del Pisco, a couple of blocks from the hotel and across the plaza.  There, we made our own Pisco Sours then went downstairs to the big booth, and had some wonderful tapas, which included shrimp that were absolutely delicious!  Lynn went crazy over them, too!
