HERE A TURIST

Cuzco is a city where past and present collide in an uneasy mix. This mythical capital of the Inca Empire, preserves with pride its wall and battlements of stone, which evoke the greatness of the sons of the sun. Cusco is a city plentiful of historical monuments and relics and of myths and legends. Visiting Cuzco is an unforgettable experience that permits to unravel some of the mysteries of the Incas, because Cusco was the center, the navel of the Andean world.

view of the city, cuzco.




Today, Cuzco is the archeological capital of Peru and the Americas

PICTURES OF SOME TURIST

















Visit Machu Picchu, you wouldnt regret it.

Machu Picchu never fails to amaze me about the Incan empire. it is weird to build a city up on the Andes and then abandon it...mysterious huh??

I dont know, why? are you planning to ride a llama so you can go to mahupicchu? man let me tell you, its going to take you around 2 years to get there. well, of course if you want get a picture with the llama, well i think you can do it, but if you want to use it as a car or train...mmm i think it's not a good idea.
