Peru and the Inca Trail: Cusco Parades

Our first experience of Peru was a wander around Cusco feeling somewhat grubby after the flights, elated to be starting our holiday and wondering what was altitude sickness and was jet-lag.  Later we would find that Cusco has amazing parades every Sunday but our first visit to the Plaza de armas de Cusco was after the parades and so we found these guys resting on the stets to the cathedral, in their vibrant yellow jackets.

On later visits we met naughty small Gorillas and some amazing costumes.

And on our last day an Inca Parade including the King, Queen and Mummies.
