I went to Cuzco and just by chance there was a traditional catholic celebration “ Corpus Christie “ During two days the carved wooden images of saints went from their church to the Catedral, in from of the main square.
It was a mix of cristian beliefs and local people ( inca ´s descendants ) Music and singing was everywhere.
This cell was painted by a monk that used his blood to obtain a rare & special red.
Inca Garcilazo ´s house, altar & bed. He was a famous local writer.
Tambomachay : Inca´bath ( fed by natural springs )
At the side of this doll, hanging higt in a tree, rural people left mesagges. It works as a comunal mail service
