Church in the main square in Cuzco.

Today, I joined a few others on another short tour of Cuzco to a few buildings we couldn't see previously because they were closed due to the bank holiday.

Cuzco & home.

We were shown around possibly the most impressive of the Cathedrals we had been to, the Cathedral of Santo Domingo. We also saw the 'Iglesia del Triunfo, or The Church of Triumph' & the 'Qurikancha, or Golden Place'. We then returned to the hotel to pack up our belongings & were taken to the airport.

At the airport, I was led through, with another lady on the tour, to the gate our plane was leaving from. I had to use my walking stick today & she was in a wheelchair, so we were taken the quick route to the gate & left there to wait for a few people who were also on our plane home. After a short wait, another airport employee appeared to take us to the gate we were really flying from, as the first person had taken us to the wrong gate.

The flight to Madrid was comfortable & time passed quickly. I couldn´t sleep on the plane but caught up on many films I didn't know I had missed. The connection to our onward flight was hassle-free & I hoped that the bags I checked through to London were on the same plane as me.

On arrival at Heathrow, I was pleased to be reconnected with my luggage & even more delighted to see my friend Tony waiting to take me back to Fareham. I was looking forward to getting home & a cup of tea.

My Final Thoughts.

I am happy I did this trip. I met some lovely people & saw some incredible places & a few I shall never forget. It is a place I would recommend people go to. I have done it now & probably won't return, but I am glad I managed to do what my dad never could. Between us, we got there dad, we saw a lot, we experienced a lot & can I say, you wouldn't have liked the Guinea Pig anyway.
