A couple more things about Cusco

I can't sign off before saying a couple more things about Cusco. Lovely town but, after all, it is a tourist town. You gotta love a place that has a parade around the town square exhorting young people to be nice to old people, however, you can't stand still or even look anyone in the eye in the town square here without getting hit up by a panhandler, a scam artist, or someone insistently trying to sell you something. The tourists themselves don't all represent their home countries well either and it pains me to hear a young man with a Chicago accent trying to buy cocaine from a Peruvian in the town square (while wearing a t-shirt that says, "I'm into drugs," no less). So if all my blog viewers wish to rush on down here to see the beauty of Cusco let them come forewarned and prepared.
