we spent a couple of days in cusco city. we both dealt with the ills of altitude sickness even though we were taking altitude medicine. i suppose at some point, altitude medication can only help so much when you go from sea level to 11,000 ft. as a result, we relaxed for the majority of our time in the city, but we still took time to explore as well.
life in the city.
i was so excited about the 12-sided stone. seriously, it was one of my top things to see while in cusco. (nerd alert).
the other highlight to the city was going to the religious art museum…not necessarily for the art, but really just for the carved cedar wood ceilings.
the sun came out in the afternoon for a beautiful shot of the main plaza.
we attended a mass in the main cathedral. the interior was quite ornate and had a last supper painting that included cuy and chica.
this is us waiting for our delayed flight to lima. i can’t say i was surprised that it was delayed considering everything in peru is always behind schedule. i am pretty sure we were the only gringos not stressed about the delay…
