Yeah, this things are bigger than me
May 15, our second day in Cuzco, we started off by eating a good breakfast in the hotel, then went up to explore the hills. We did kinda lost ourselves just for a little bit, we walked by a school, and I the students where the ruins of Sacsayhuaman were, and they pointed us to the right direction. On our way over there we found nice areas to take pictures, there were also people who came up to us a few times offering us horses to ride. We could tell we were there whenever we starting seeing some unsual rocks that were huge and placed perfectly together making a wall. How in the wolrd did the Incas manage to built this? You can't even fit a piece of paper in between the rocks, and its still a mystery. From Sacsayhuaman you can also get a nice view of everything, you can expect to see many tourist walking around too, anywhere from americans, to europeans, and I even remember seeing japanese tourists.
If you want, you can easily find a guide around there that will explain everything to you. You can also find people seeling drinks, snacks and a few souvenirs. If you take a picture with one of the locals, they will probably ask you for a small tip. From Sacsayhuaman we also notice that we were not far from that Christ statue that we saw earlier, so we went up there to visit him as well. Once we were there, we had a nice view of the plaza, everything felt peaceful, the nice blue sky and the fresh air, it was a wonderful experience. There aren't many cars around, thats probably why it felt that way. At night, it does start to get a little cold, so we headed back down and went back to the panaderia to buy more of that good tasting bread, with some Inca Kola.
