Cusco, former heart of the Inca empire and situated in high altitude in the Andes. I was in and out of Cusco as I made forays into Bolivia and hiked the Inca trail.


View of the majestic Andes as my plane made its way from Lima.



The town square and surroundings. The outskirts sprawl into the mountains, and some locals live out there and commute into town for work.



Various streets and daily life.



Inti Raimi festival - I was there to coincide with the sun festival. The streets were alive with colourful dancers.



Scenery of the surrounding mountains from my bus window as I made my way out of Cusco, including an alpaca herd crossing.



One of the locals Amanda and her souvenir shop.
