Posted on May 5, 2016December 28, 2017 by jim Photos from our few days in Cusco before heading out on our Machu Picchu trek. Santa Ana The mission at Santa Ana in Cusco as seen from our room at the Hotel Mirador de Santa Ana. Catedral de Cusco The Cusco Cathedral from our dinner spot at the Restaurant Mechita in the Plaza de Armas Aaaaaaah After a long day of travel, nothing beats uno cerveza frio! Alpaca Steak Alpaca steak is EXCELLENT! Like extremely lean beef, tasty and easier on the arteries. Just your everyday Alpaca It’s every day that you get to hold a baby Alpaca, no? Cusco Nightlife Not the sharpest shot, but a good enough example of the city vibrance at night, as seen from our room at the Hotel Mirador de Santa Ana. Too Cute The baby goat was too cute not to get a photo with! Well worth the $3.00 or whatever we tipped the owners. Bug Eyes Classic VW Beetles are everywhere in Peru. Plaza de Armas You have to include a photo of Plaza de Armas! Latin Lady Justice A mural on a city building depicts a version of Lady Justice without her sword. Monkey Do A painting of the monkey from the famous Nazca Lines in the Nazca Desert in Peru. Take Your Pick How would you like your guinea pig prepared today? Fields of Flowers Fields of beautiful purple flowers in the Cusco hills. Flying Rats A couple of pigeons watching carefully to see if we’re careless eaters. Rolling Probable Cause Just driving this VW MicroBus is probable cause for getting stopped by the cops. Ghandi Agrees Ghandi Agrees – Hippies Suck! Disturbing Ads I think I’m going to have nightmares from this beer advertisement! The Long Way Home Walking back into Cusco from Saksaywaman – it’s a long way down!
