We used AA17.5K each way for USA DFW LIM CUZ, @ the LGA Admirals club lounge which we got in using my AA Citi Advatge card using Dans link,  we spotted Sting waiting for his flight I wonder is Sting uses DD for his flights?! I will let the pictures do most of the talking.

Sting waiting his flight:

Hiked up Machu Pichu mountain (Big Mistake, take the bus if your going)


Machu Pichu


Machu Pichu Lama's




Aguas Calientes, the town near Machu Pichu, it is best to stay in this town when arriving in CUZ to avoid high altitude sickness


CUZ




CUZ Street


Cocaine leaves, which is used to make Cocaine, but it is normal to chew on these leaves and quite healthy to  suck on  the Juices to take away any high altitude sickness you may feel and it really  works, I wonder how many years in prison if this was brought to the US?!


CUZ Scenes


LIM Bound, used 4.7K BA Avios for CUZ>LIM

Thanks, it was a mistake but don't regret it, did you do the other hikes Machu pichu mountain or wayna picchu? those are very strenuous.

Tell us more about why not to do the hike, most reviews online say that is the real way to properly do it.

I took the bus down and I saw nicer views then  Hiking up, the reason why people take the hike so they  can feel like an Inca the way the Inca's hiked up the mountin ;D
