Today we continued our journey to Cusco, a city in the Peruvian Andes which was once the capital of the Inca Empire. In the morning we had slight start problems … the cab we ordered did not come, so we had to order another (afterwards we had learned that the first cab driver had an emergency).
The flight (A320) and the car ride to the hotel “El BALKON”,
went smoothly. We had ordered the car through the Uber app.
In the main square in the old town (Plaza de Armes), you’ll find porticoes, carved wooden balconies and wall ruins from the Inca era. The Santo Domingo Monastery was built on the remains of the Inca Temple of the Sun (Coricancha). Parts of the original masonry can still be seen.
Today there was, in an Italian restaurant at the Plaza, once really good coffee with the cake! Our hotel is not far away and offers a good cuisine and a pleasant room ambience.
Today we had pasta for Silke and alpaca steak for me.
