Boat and bus back to Puerto Moldanado, repack luggage, off to the airport with a packaged lunch of a pot pie, a cookie, and a tangerine. Cindy bought me a coke and we shared some Pringle chips. We flew to Cusco, then boarded another bus for the 2.5 hour ride to the Hotel Pakaritampu in the Sacred Valley. We arrived at 6 PM, had dinner (trout!!) at 7 along with mashed potatoes, a baked tomato, and elderberry cheesecake.
We are now at 9000 feet above sea level and advised to drink coca tea and lots of water.
