Immediately after I stepped out of the plane I felt smth strange. First few minutes I even couldn’t realize whats going on but than I saw one picture on the wall of the airport with written “Welcome to Cusco 3500m alt”… I’ve never been somewhere before where the alt is more then 2000 m and it was always done gradually!!!! But that move today from 0m to 3500m gave me feeling that I’m on the moon! In a few minutes we were already in the taxi on the way to Urubamba Valley! And how shocked I was when the driver have proposed me some package with leaves inside – COCA LEAVES – and told me that I should chew them to normalize my pressure! (probably i really looked not so good:)) So Coca leaves are really legal here!
