At the front desk of the hostel there was lots of leaflets and flyers advertising things in the area
Im glad i done the tour as i got to see alot of the old town of Cusco and learnt alot of things along the way. A couple of which iv listed below.
Cuscos old name was qosqo which in quechua means center, in the jungle there is still 76 dialects of the language spoken. The town is also shaped as a puma which is one of the three special gods of the Incas, the other two being the Snake and the Condor. The three of these is like Christianitys Father, Son and holy Spirit. Machu Picchu is also in the shape of the Condor, this is pretty crazy and no one knows how they done this without an aerial view of the land.....ALIENS!!! Lake titikaka is also shaped as a Puma, and on a certain day the way the sunshines on it the lake looks golden. The word titikaka means golden puma. How could they call it that and know it looked like that from the ground? Visions from Iowaska or ALIENS!!!
At its peak the Incan civilization spanned from south Colombia to Northern Argentina all down the Andes which is the same as from Spain to Russia to give you a feel of the distance.
Back home if im to go to my mums for tea no matter what it is she cooks (oven cooked though) it is always going to come with some form of tatties
There was alot more but most were just about how the spanish basically built lots of churches and messed up the Incas etc so i wont harp on about that. We also went in past the tour guides mates house who made his own instruments. He even had a donkey jaw as an instrument haha.
It had been a while since i had facetimed that horrible excuse of a man Stephen so thought id give him a shout, it wouldnt work so had to set up skype. Took a while as i couldnt remember my log in or password. After speakin absolute shite to him for a while i done the same with mum dad and abbie which was good.
Yet another flyer i had picked up from the front desk was one for an indian restaraunte called Korma Sutra which advertised tandoori grilled Guinea pig. Im gaggin for an indian and also want to try Guinea pig so thats where im headed for dinner! A canadian called Sarah who i had just spoken to for 10 minutes ended up joining me and we headed there
The streets of cusco are filled with shops all mostly selling the same things, hats and llama teddys. Night time in Cusco is pretty nippy so i bought myself a hat for £4 which is a bargain. Saw some pan pipes and know how stephen loves random shite to clutter his flat with so got him a set, fingers crossed they make it to Dubai!
