– The layout and architecture of the city is quite beautiful, and it is interesting that many of the colonial buildings have Inca foundations.
– Cusco (unlike Lima) is a VERY touristy place. Hawkers of all kinds are everywhere, taking a little away from the otherwise beautiful setting.
– In case you are wondering if the presence of the rainbow flag in many of the photos indicates that Cusco is a super gay city, know that the rainbow flag is also an Inca symbol. Some local residents have been worried about the confusion however.
– There is some sort of “festival” going on today, and a brass band has been playing incessantly for the past 6 hours.
