Arranged things in advance for the very first time on my trip!

Ok, so this morning I woke up around 830 and sat for over an hour waiting to use the internet to check my email. I'm staying in this hostal that's fairly popular and quite large. There are probably 100 people there and there are only 4 computers with free internet so people really tend to take advantage of that. Then I had the 'Irish Breakfast' at the hostal which I must say was truly spectacular.
Then Masha, Owen and I went out and walked around the town for a while trying to arrange a hostal for the weekend of the Inti Raymi. This was the first time on my trip that I've reserved a place to stay and it feels pretty weird. I'm used to just showing up and staying somewhere. Then we went back to the Plaza de Armas and watched the continuing festivities leading up to the Inti Raymi from a balcony of a local restaurant while we sipped freshly squeezed pineapple and orange juice.
At One o'clock we met up with two other couples and went to arrange our trip to Machu Picchu.
