Day Two - Cuzco

Sacsayhuaman ruins outside Cusco

Andrew and I are on an early flight on LAN to Cusco. We are picked up at the airport in Cusco and whisked to our hotel. We soon meet our guide Vidal who takes us to the Plaza Del Armas where we meet up with some of our fellow travelers who had arrived a day earlier. We take a tour of the basilica and then grab some lunch. Then its on to Sacsayhuaman which is on a high cliff above the city. The view is spectacular as are the ruins. The way the Incans could fit such large, odd-shaped stones together using hand tools is stunning. Much of the old part of Cusco is built using the remains of the Incan structures as foundations for the more modern buildings – a testament to Incans' building skills.
