Another Lazy Day

A travel blog entry by gavin_davies on Jan 05, 2015

Another lazy day in Aerquipue. A few ladies from Cusco/the Jungle turned up due to bad weather in Cusco so we hung out with those for a bit.

... really well. She was a 12yr old and sacrificed to the gods in a ritual manner. She has been named Juanita and is known as the Inca Ice Maiden. She was from a noble family and this would have been a great honour as she would have been reborn with the gods.
