There’s so many things to love about Cusco – here are ten simple but beautiful things to get there.
Cuisine in Cusco is one of the best things about it. The variety, diversity, presentation, taste, all of it.
Many people will tell you that the weather in Cusco sucks. I disagree. There’s no better feeling than listening to the rain as you drift off or getting under the covers with a book.
3: Stray Llamas:
You got to love ‘em, they’re freaking llamas.
Brownies cakes and cookies, oh my!
The women in the market are extremely friendly (most of the time), and make going to the market at least 10 times better.
6: Almost no sun.
Because getting sun burnt sucks.
7: Alpaca sweaters and beanies.
Sure, they may be touristy, but it feels like a giant layer of warm marshmallow on your body. Oh god the softness…
8: It’s quiet (most of the time, at least).
Being in a quiet area lets you get more work done and relax, although sometimes it’s too quite, and you feel like Slenderman is watching you as you sleep.
9: It’s safe.
This one is obvious, as I’m almost never in the mood to be robbed.
I know I already said llamas, but c’mon. It’s like if you crossed a giraffe and a pony, and then gave it the ability to spit really far and made it have eyelashes. What’s not to love?
