Cusco takes your breath away - literally!

A travel blog entry by wanderingrugies on Mar 28, 2003

The altitude can take its toll, with headaches and shortness of breath being the order of the day - initially at least. Once you are over that (or just try to ignore it like I did) go out and explore the streets of Cusco. There are plenty of great art & craft shops and inviting restaurants- including the "Chifas" serving a unique fusion of …

July 26 - Sacred Valley, Pisqua, and Ollantaytambo

... they use spindles to create wool. They use a variety of natural ingredients to create soap to wash the wool and to make brightly colored dyes. For example, they used parasites from a cactus to make a bright red color. After the demonstration, we were given time to look around at all the items they were selling. Kelly and I both bought winter headbands, gloves, socks, and sweaters, all made up of alpaca fur. We are all set for winter. After the weaving town, we set off ...

... alpaca, spinning the thread, and weaving, they said that a typical runner will take them 36-40 days working 7 hours a day. Which wow. I complain about writing a term paper for a couple hours a week. After talking with the women I bought probably the most comfortable and warmest gloves in my entire life. Entirely made of Alpaca, Cleveland winters have nothing on these suckers. Next weekend I'm off to Machu Picchu. While I'm very excited, I can only hope there won't be as many stairs. ...

... is full of wonderful milk bottles. To start this positive week, we opted for a Virtual Sunday over sightseeing in Arequipa. After a 2 hour leisurely breakfast in the sun, the 'milk bottles' (Dave, Davo, Davie, Ash, Heather, Yasmin and I) walked through the beautiful town of Arequipa to the supermarket and did our cook group shopping for the following few days... Who am I kidding? Dave sent me to shop for our afternoon picnic while he shopped for the groups food.

... in an open air covered patio and we enjoyed trying new foods. And while I tried it, the guinea pig was not among my favorite items! I did very much enjoy everything else, especially the dessert of tiramisu.

After dinner had concluded we were given our lanyard pins for the day and we made our way back to our casita to retire for the night. It had been a long but great day and we were looking forward to a good night's sleep - we didn't have to meet for breakfast until 8 am the next ...

    Our original hotel wasn't all that good, so we changed to the Hotel Ruinas on arrival. Really can't praise it highly enough. It is a small place, located about 100m off the Plaza de Armas. That makes it easy to get to and from, but quiet!
    It is very well kept, with comfortable beds (queen) and spacious rooms. Breakfast was simple but tasty.
    Thoroughly recommended!

    Lovely simple place just off Plaza de Armas. Large and comfortable room (we were given an up-grade the moment the receptionist found out we were on honeymoon). The food was great - tried Alpaca for the first time. Very friendly & helpful staff.
