Another solo trip.
I went to Peru in May of 2010 and did not go to Machu Picchu. Eeep! I felt like I broke some backpackers code but the simple reality is that you can’t do everything at every moment.
I certainly want to go to Machu Picchu, it’s on the list, but this trip was about mountains and snow; and so I spent a month in the Cordillera Blanca and loved every minute.
