A guide book I had purchased before the trip directed me to the Stone of Twelve Angles. While trying to find it, a young college student approached me with a notebook, offering to explain the history of the stone, theories on how the wall was erected, and even figures of the condor, jaguar, and snake whose shapes would be seen as a cluster of stones (when pointed out to the untrained eye). Quite informative! She spent a good 30 minutes pointing things out, explaining the history and just educating me about Inca building techniques. Later, she directed me to one of the two remaining Inca stonework doorways still standing.
I wandered about the streets a good bit taking pictures.
My wish is that somewhere amongst my ramblings and these pictures you have found something of interest. My only other noteworthy trip was to Paris, France, but given a choice I would return here first in a heartbeat! I just feel in love with the people and the land. All together, I snapped over 600 pictures in 6 days. I hope the ones I have chosen give you a fair representation of Cusco and the Inca!
