|We flew from LaPaz to Cusco, Peru. This is a statue in Cusco. |
Our first day was spent touring the city.
|A cute young Peruvian girl. She has two favorite things people|
like here in South America ( sheep and a candy lollipop)
|This is the church of Santa Domingo it was built on top of Inca temple ruins.|
The ruins were once a palace of the Inca King Wiracocha.
|Inside the Santa Domingo they have rebuilt some|
walls and formation that were once here from
the Inca's civilization. Lloyd is standing on a
block looking through windows that are
shown in the picture below.
|This is the friends we traveled with. Ken and Eve Winkfield,|
Tammy and Bob Cardon and Eldon and Dawn Hurst. We are
sitting on a wall outside the church.
|This area is called Q'enqo. There was a rock formation here that is|
thought to have been a sacrificial altar.
|More rock formations. It is believed these enormous rocks were |
roughly shaped in the quarry and then transported on wooden rollers and inclined
planes to the sites where they were completely shaped and finished.
|Another view of Cusco. You can see the large round soccer (futbol)|
stadium. They love futbol in South America. The population of
Cusco 1.2 million people.
