Day 26 & 27 - Cuzco and the journey home

sunny 19 °C

Our final day has arrived - once our suitcases were packed and left with reception we went to have one final look around the city.

We walked up to Plaza de Armas and then across to Plaza Regocijo where a shoeshine boy offered to clean my shoes for about 25p. We carried on through to Plaza San Francisco to see the San Francisco church and an ornamental archway through to Santa Clara.

We looked around a small craft market and bought a wrap - it's supposed to be alpaca wool but as we learnt yesterday alpaca wool feels cold and this doesn't.

It clouded over and started to spit with rain so we stopped for lunch in a little cafe and luckily the shower didn't last too long. We headed back towards Santa Domingo (Qoricancha) to have our photos taken with the baby llamas

It's nearly time to go, so we headed back towards the hotel and sat in the park opposite the hotel to enjoy the sunshine

We visited the craft markets across from the hotel and bought a t-shirt for Rob and some llama fridge magnets

Our guide arrived for our final journey with him to the airport and our first flight to Lima. At Lima we have to collect our bags, leave the domestic airport and walk around to the International airport to check in for our flight to Madrid - although they are the same building you have to go out one door walk outside for 100m and come back in another door! - despite only having 90 minutes between the two flights we still manage to check-in and this time our bags go straight through to Heathrow. We both managed to get some sleep, so even though the flight was over 11 hours, it seemed to go reasonably quickly.
We transferred to a new plane in Madrid for the short hop to Heathrow. We had booked a car to drive us home and got the driver to take one last holiday photo for us.
