A Travellerspoint blog


I did a city tour of Cuzco today and seen lots of old churches, one which we visited, and different archeological sites of the Inca's. It's a real shame the Spanish came here and the Catholics had everything destroyed. As I stated in a former posting, the Catholics would build their churches upon these sites. The Inca's had some amazing architecture, and what was left, still survives all earthquakes as modern buildings collapse around them.


One of the most interesting sites on our tour was Sacsayhuamán (Sexy Woman). It was an old water storage site that supplied the city of Cuzco in the time of the Inca's. There where still lots of huge, intricately fitting stone walls standing.


I ended the day with a meal at the Hatun Wasi Hotel. It was disgusting. The soup tasted like a bowl of salt water with a few vegetables floating in it, and the spaghetti with chicken tasted as equally salty, with very little chicken hidden amongst it. They charged me 5 soles for a bottle of water, when I was used to paying 1. I didn't finish eating the meal, and on my way back to my Hostal I stopped for some fried chicken and fries, which ended up not tasting much better. I can't understand how a country with over 3,000 types of potatoes cannot make good french-fires? I ended up with diarrhea that night.
