Our stay in room 114 at the San Agustin International is short and functional. In Peru to see Machu Picchu, we stay in Cusco a couple of nights after our great adventure on the mountain. After a couple of pisco sours at the El Arcangel restaurant—and a mysterious, yet tasty, green purée for dinner, when I’d thought I’d ordered potatoes and vegetables of the day—the Brawny Sherpa and I sack out in our room, exhausted from scaling Machu Picchu.

The San Agustin suits our purposes: centrally located in Cusco, it’s not far from the Plaza de Armas, there’s easy souvenir shopping for the youthful adventurers just around the corner, and good restaurants are nearby.

We are in the city during carnival, and probably no place is quiet. Our room looks out on a courtyard but still carries the sounds of the street. We are too tired to care, as we rest up in anticipation of a trip to Cusco’s market, its cathedral, and then on to Saqsaywaman.
