Got to a Hostel at 4h and slept till 10 when we leaft with Victor (Argentinian friend met at the islands) to meet another Mathilde (again met on the islands) to go up to the ruins above Cusco. We got a taxi up to Tambomachay (old Incan baths) and walked our way down towards Cusco visiting other ruins on the way.
then Q'enqo, a massive sacrifice alter, where I got whisteld down by guards because I was climbing up when you werent supposed to (the guide book says you can, lol).
The final place visited was Saqsaywaman (Pronounced 'Sexy Woman' but meaning 'satisfied faucon' in Queshua. Saqsaywoman is the ruins of an old Incan fort, an imposing structure eventhough only roughly 20% of the size of the original building (The spanish dismantle the fort to use to stonesto build churhces, houses, etc). Got back to cusco after the 10km walk and went out to drink in town with all the people we met at the islands and that had accompanied us up to Cusco (10 people), we got loads of free drink flyers in the street for different bars and as such went from bar to bar drinking for free. Next day going around to Moray.
