First of all, I have spent lots of time the past couple of weeks browsing the Peru forum, I have found a wealth of information and some excellent advice. Thanks everyone for your contributions!
I will be in the Cusco area the first full week of May. My primary interest is visiting ruins. I have decided to spend two days at MP and one day in Cusco City Center. This leaves four days. I am not a day tour type - too many markets, too much driving, and not enough time in the ruins.
So right now I am thinking day trips to my top 4 places:
3. Cusco City - Sacsayhuaman, Qenko, Pucapucara, and Tambomachay
4. South of Cusco - Tipon and Pikillacta
I understand I will be missing some very cool places, I guess that is the price I pay for being old and slow :-)
Does anyone disagree with my top 4?
