CUSCO PERU LIFE IN THE MOUNTAINS Photo Gallery
I see them all the time look at, you, this is Chewbacca the alpaca. I’ve named him alright boys this various here. I’m also known as the alpaca whisperer trying to gain his trust right now Lourdes.
So if you guys are familiar with your alpaca llama facts, it’s that if you get too close to them and, you actually annoy them. I think they tend to spit on, you haven’t seen it yet heaven hasn’t happened to me yet, but we were just told about five months they actually can’t spit. So that comes later in life.
So, this is a low threat alpaca as we like to call them back in Canada dreams come true here in Peru what’s up guys we’ve just arrived here in cusco about an hour. And a half later traffic was moving really slow because of the rain. And the really narrow roads, but, this is we’re gonna be for the next two nights at this incredible hotel I’ll show, you around in just a sec.

So this will be a good space for us to do our edits. And then coming in here, this is where Jamie and.
I have our relaxation space. I’m very impressed. So that right there is our hotel, this is coricancha.
I believe korikancha is the temple of the Sun correct Oh see the Sun Temple of the Sun Kathy was saying it might not be worth going inside, but the most beautiful part is from the outside. So we’re seeing that, it’s gorgeous even just walking like around these areas wearing my backpack it actually puts me out of breath a little bit the physical exertion becomes that much more challenging with the thin air welcome to Korea folks we just walked behind this six-foot-five white guy he’s like psychedelic mushrooms bring him home to mom like what is he doing it through. So Cusco is very different than Lima, it’s a lot more like colonial style, it’s got that old-school kind of almost European look to it, this is Plaza de Armas and, this is like the central city square, it’s really beautiful you’ve got a nice green space you’ve got these incredible cathedrals.
And in the middle you’ve got this fountain with your like a really powerful looking ink on top of it just off the city square we are going to love that out Vienna and, this is apparently a really great place to get some lunch. So let’s go. I’m starving how about that for a backdrop right behind us an incredible Cathedral how’s the hot chocolate good needs a bit of sugar though cuz.
