We have been generally bumming around Cusco spending time with Georgi which is lovely! It is nice to be a threesome and we are now JEVINA not just Jev! We have also met lots of nice people from Georgi´s language school and volunteers.
In an attempt to be cultural we went to a folk dancing show, which was...well...ok. Our favourite part was when all the men pretended to be birds and pranced around the stage like birds. It was VERY different from the dancing we loved in Cartagena!
We went to Pisac for market day which we loved! Beautiful little town surrounded by huge mountains. And we all managed to treat ourselves to a few select alpaca market things. So many of the stalls sold everything you could possibly imagine made of alpaca wool, so it was very hard to resist as Cusco is very cold!
We have also managed to get over our illnesses/ altitude sickness enough to sample the Cusco nightlife!
We really like Cuzco, it is so beautiful and we are more than happy to be spending some time here! We already have our favourite little coffee place and have become regulars at an israeli restaurant where we eat very smelly food, play blackgammon and also managed to get pancakes on pancake day!
Ooo and we bumped into two friends we made in the jungle which was lovely! We also saw Blaise who we lived with in Quito!
