A photo of La Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús, a church in Plaza de Armas in Cusco, Peru. Photo taken November, 2013.
Traveling through South America was definitely a dream come true for me. The first couple of days was spent in Quito, Ecuador to acclimatize to the altitude of the Andes. After a night in Lima, the capital of Peru, we pressed on towards Cusco, Peru. As I stepped out of the plane I immediately felt very dizzy and my lips and fingers were tingling – the air was so thin I was almost gasping for air. But after sitting down for a few minutes, my body adjusted to the lower oxygen intake and I managed to walk about without dry-heaving. A good nights sleep was followed by a stroll around Cusco where I found this magnificent church. I just had to take a picture!
