Town of Pisac

The ruins are high on the side of the valley, looking down on the town. Big hike back down!

Plaza de Armas, Cusco

...was deserted when we ate dessert for breakfast this morning. Should be. The festivities, parades, and fireworks continued until 3am local time.
The catedral is on the left, [out of shot] the tent in the middle covers the fountain which is being repaired (ha!) And the other church is the "La Compania de Jesús" ...vantage point is the "Plus Grill" which is above our hostel.

Cusco:

Today is the Desfile General--Saludo Al Cusco ...a parade that celebrates it's namesake city--but it's not just any parade, these people take things very, very seriously! The main square is packed and the parade is still going as strong as it was this morning! It's 7:10pm local time and it's been dark and chilly already for a couple hours!

Because it used to be a monastery

...there is a 300 year-old tree in the courtyard of El Monistario. It had several birds-nests in it, including a pair of doves. Apparently the Quechua name is "Ur-picha" which comes from their word for heart. Hmmm, I learned something.

Lima, leaving for Cusco

What look like mountains on the horizon is actually an island off the coast.
