Today was a walk around Cusco. It is a gateway to Machu Picchu. It has a lot of charm with many restaurants, hostels and tourist information outlets. Lance and I visited several museums about the history of the early Incas and Machu Picchu. We even visited a Chocolate Factory and Museum. We watched the beans come from the pod and tasted the coca from the bean. Was not to tasty. Then we watched the process and tasted the finish goods. Yum! Below are a few photos of the faces that we ran into today on our adventures of Cusco.
If you look close you can see two baby Alpaccas
Off to a day in Cusco of museums and getting a look into the faces of Cusco…..
After exchanging a few smiles I got this photo of this young boy’s curiosity.
There are many Church’s
We are going into the door of the Chocolate Factory. They pronounce the cocoa bean as a Coca bean.
We sat in one of those balcony’s to taste the Coca Tea. To be honest I was afraid to sit with my entire body on the chair. Afraid of heights and all I could think of is…when is the balcony so old as to fall. Smile.
