Inca Kola tastes like Banana poison!!!!
We are back from a full day of walking and checking out Cusco. We primarily went to the main 3 cathedrals, including the 2 at Plaza de Armas and the one at San Blas. We are now officially churched out!!! We also walked around the many small alleys and mazed streets, which have artist shops, jewelery shops and the trinket tourist shops.
The amount of tourists is increadible. Since the seasons are reversed, this is their fall, going to winter, which is high season, since it is the dry season. There are about 10 flights a day going from Lima to Cusco, and this time of the year, they are all booked up. We barely were able to get our tickets about 2 months ago.
It is really nice during the day, around 20-25 degrees, but it drops right away when it gets dark. It must be around 5 degrees right now.
Just got back from dinner, really good. Might try the cuy or guinea pig tomorrow....ummmm...
btw, in Peru they have this famous cola called Inca Kola, and let me tell you, that stuff is toxic. will stick to the coca tea!
