Inka Ruins

This afternoon we did the city tour round Cusco.

We  visited 4 Inka sites plus the cathedral.

The Inka sites were,Saqsayhuman,Q,enqo, Pucapucara,and Tambomachay.

Our guide was very good and gave us lots of information as well as pointing out many interesting things to us, like the snake that is part of the Inka wall.

Also the water from one of the springs that is meant to give you internal youth if you drink it and make you produce triplets too ,  needless to say I did not drink any 🙂

We even got to sit in the Inka kings throne.

At the end of the tour we visited an alpaca shop that showed us the difference between imitation alpaca , baby alpaca and full grown alpaca wool.

I could not resist buying myself a poncho made from baby Alpaca.

    Sounds like a great time so far!

    Fancy trusting a man who tells you not to pack too much! You’ll have to buy yourself a pretty dress!

    Oh I love that poncho. It’s fab.

    I still have a pair of alpaca gloves I bought in S America over 20 years ago. I love them so much I cannot bear to get rid of them – but they are more hole than glove now. But so warm and so soft.

    Triplets eh? Def don’t drink!!!
