Abancay via Cuzco Peru

 Flying into Cuzco Peru is an adventure. The plane basically pivots around a mountain and then drops down into the little valley surrounded by high mountains. It is beautiful. We hopped onto the bus and stopped for lunch at a Peruvian restaraunt. The view as you can see was spectacular. The soccer stadium was full of cheering fans. 

 The drive over mountains to Abancay was stunning. However it had solid hair pin turns and we soon found ourselves very nauseated. 
 The LDS Church where we taught the NRT course was 28 years old but so clean and nice. The picture below shows the difference between the Church and the building that is right next to it. 

 The Church ad for the area has a picture of Machu Pichu on it. How lucky they are to be able to live so close to one of the most beautiful places on earth. Abancay is a pretty town in a mountain valley. The people are very nice. We are so thankful to be able to meet so many nice people in the world.
