The true colours of Cusco

I wrote so many negative things about Cusco in my last post, that you might get the impression there is nothing good about the city. Nothing more false than that! If you forget the tourist, leave the centre you find that next to the touristic spectacle the city lives its normal life.

The best moment to see Cusco is … in the rain. The streets get empty, the tourists disappear and for a moment you can feel how this place could have looked like before travellers invaded it.

The market is – as usual – full of the things and people that are the essence of Peru. Talkative ladies selling food, people chatting as they buy fresh cheese or a goat’s head – everything loud, vivid and colourful.
