Over the course of two weeks, we scratched the surface of a tiny little corner of Perú. So much left to explore!
Cusco & The Sacred Valley of the Incas are full of history and interesting sites. We only explored a few before our trek.
In Cusco, high-quality Inca stonework is very evident.
The famous 12-sided stone.
The best quality stonework can be found the few remaining walls inside Qurikancha, the most important temple within the Inca Empire
Arrival of the conquistadores brought Spanish or Mudejar architecture, often with stones appropriated from Inca structures
Not really sure why this donkey is carrying a math textbook, and playing with a soccer ball
Black or purple corn, used to make drinks and desserts
Perú is home to many delicious and nutricious grains, besides the most famous, quinoa
A little village outside Cusco specializes in baking bread, to be sold in the big city
Yup, pigs' heads
At a little local market outside Cusco, the full bounty of Perú's agriculture is displayed in abundance
These are tomatoes!
We did not see another tourist here
