Cristo Blanco

Last night I did my first touristy type activity here. My roommate Dawn took me up to the Cristo Blanco statue that overlooks Cusco. We had a great trip up in a taxi (nearly being run over by a very small parade and winding up, up, up narrow backstreets). Wow! It was amazing to be able to see the valley with all of Cusco below. We could hear a live band playing in one of the plazas, see the ruins of Sacyshuaman and identify some of the points of interest in Cusco. Here are my touristy type pics!

Cusco (I'm sorry if this looks like a unfolded map! I had to peice together at least 5 pics to get this panoramic - you can look at this one a little bigger by double clicking on it! It should open in another window)
