Walking tour of Cusco

Our flight to Cusco was at 9:30 AM so we awoke early and ate a good breakfast and walked back across the street to go through security and board our Lan flight to Cusco. We were met by a representative of Adventure Life who took us to our guide, Herbe. He was to be with us for a couple of days. After we checked into our hotel, Hotel San Augustin, we drank a cup of coca tea, which I found to be very tasteful. After eating lunch, we were picked up by Herbe and we walked to another hotel where a couple and their two teen-aged daughters were staying. They were to be with us for the next four days. We took a walking tour and saw the Santa Domingo church and courtyard and a museum in Cusco. We were surprised to see real mummies in the museum. We were told that the ancients believed in keeping their relatives with them in their house. They believed in reincarnation and needed that body to re-enter the world. We had a good meal that evening and both tried a Chicha Morada(a drink made from purple corn), which was good, but a little sweet and not very cold.
