So not much of Inca Cusco remains - instead the colonial features rule in the centre. We did the free walking tour to see more of the city's key parts and ended with a free pisco sour tasting - result!
We spent a lot of time at Jack's cafe - lovely brekkie, cakes and proper coffee!! A lot of our time in Cusco was spent chilling out - however we did manage to visit some of the archeological sites just outside the city - Tambomachay & Pukapukara.
We walked back on an exciting cut through the fields / heath lands - not really a trail! And came out on sexy woman (Saqsaywaman) which was closed by the time we got there, but we got a really good view of Christo Blanco.
On Sunday we had planned to head back to Sexywoman and then on to Pisaq - however we got derailed by carnival kicking off in the town centre. Children and adults alike targeted the gringos with water bombs and foam spray!
We soon retreated to the hostel to dump our stuff, have a fortifying beer and get armed up!
A quick pisco sour stop before heading back into the melee with the supersize cans!
There was some traditional dancing by the locals in the procession - but even those dancing got targetted!
After a few buckets we were throughly soaked, it was great fun!!
