Peru, March 2005
Cuzco, The ancient Royal city of the Incas
Qosqo in Quechua, the Inca language, means
Manco Capac (son of the sun) founded the capitol city of the Inca Empire here in the 12th century
according to legend, this is
where the golden rod finally sunk into the ground.
( a reverse "Sword & Stone" analogy)
Cuzco or Cusco .. doesn't seem to matter

Saqsayhuaman Pronounced "Sexy Woman"
Although the locals called this a vicuna, it apparently is another alpaca
.. not a vicuna.
We were told they were used for wool.
Who's been sitting in my seat! Oops! A local dressed in traditional Incan Chief
I am sitting in the seat that chiefs apparently used.
