Every Monday, we’ll post the answer to the previous week’s Photo Friday quiz. Play along with future photo guessing games by subscribing to our blog (top right).
The correct answer to last Friday’s photo guessing game is Cuzco, Peru! Also spelled Cusco, this former Incan capital in the Andes Mountains is the most common starting point for travelers hiking the Inca Trail — or taking the train — to Machu Picchu. The city is worth visiting in its own right for its elegant colonial buildings and historic churches. It’s also a good idea to spend a few days here acclimating yourself to the high altitude before embarking on a strenuous mountain trek.
