Have been in Cusco, Peru for nearly one week already and am loving it! The town is easily walkable and really quaint with 3 main central plazas. Its packed with Inca ruins and relics and has the yummyest juice alley in the central market which has every fruit under the sun for about 2 sols which is about 30p! Bought the most gorgeous pink alpaca jumper which is so necessary at night coz it gets so cold!
Spent the first week chilling out in the sun and volunteering with the tiny kids in the Aldea Yanapay school who are so cute! They all shout 'profey' when they see us and run up and give us a cuddle and a kiss! Considering they all come from deprived backgrounds with abusive drunk fathers, it is a miracle they still know how to be kids! Taught them 'Old MacDonald' and they all wore animal masks and did dance moves! The youngest is 3 or 4!
Bought my tourist ticket today so am missoning round all the historic sites in and around Cusco in the next 10 days - then its off to the Inca Trail and white water rafting...
Ciao por le momento xxxxx
