These are dates from when we were in southern Peru. I think we were getting a little burnt out on the Gringo Trail by then. But Colca Canyon was really cool, even if going there meant an extra 12 hours or so of bus time. (Same as going to the Amazon - an extra 20 plus hours of sitting on the bus, but sooo worth it.) And Cusco was a lot better than I thought it would be. I expected a horrible little place overrun and destroyed by tourism but I found the old town to be really quaint and beautiful. Go Cusco!
