Lima • Fly to Cuzco • Explore Chinchero & the Sacred Valley:
This morning, we flew to Cuzco, the center of the Incan world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We then drove to the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
We visited the mountain weaving village of Chinchero,
which—at an elevation of 12,500 feet—is a literal high point of our exploration of the Sacred Valley,
and provides excellent views of the surrounding mountains.
Chinchero was the site of a 16th-century Inca emperor's estate, as well as a resting place on the Inca Royal Road.
We'll explored the town and observed a demonstration of making traditional textiles,
seeing how Peruvian weavers create complex patterns in colorful cloth as their ancestors have for centuries.
Afterwards, we checked in to our hotel in the Sacred Valley, which is at a lower elevation than Cuzco;
staying here helped us acclimatize to the altitude.
 
 
今天早上 10:40 坐飛機去 Cuzco (海拔 11152 呎),
下機後坐汽車開到 Sacred Valley (海拔 12360 呎), 太陽很強烈,

導遊有測心跳的東西,我當時心跳一百五十。
我們去參觀當地人染布織布的表演。
聿罇不舒服,看完染布織布的表演去汽車裡休息。

然後導遊帶大家到另一處 Chinchero 爬山賞景,聿罇留在車上沒下來。
後回旅館。
也許是高山症,我晚上整晚無法入眠。
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
往 Sacred Valley 進發,
 
 
 
 
 
 
汽車開到 Sacred Valley (海拔 12360 英尺), 停下來休息, 太陽灼熱強烈,
 
導遊耽心大家對高原地的承受力,半途停下車來,
拿出一個東西給大家測心跳,我當時是一百五十,聿罇更高,
有些人是正常的八十多,我想可能是吃藥的,
 
 
 
 
當地一個小販,雖然太陽極強烈,因為地勢太高,所以冷,還戴著厚呢帽,穿著毛衣毛襪,
