This morning while Jess and Sam were at school our language teacher Lily taught us about Inca and Catholic history in the centre of Cusco.
We visited the cathedral and saw the painting of Jesus and the disciples eating guinea pig and other Peruvian food for the last supper.
She taught us about Inca architecture , we saw the famous stone wall with 12 angles and we visited some archeological ruins which are in the process of being restored. Cusco is rich in history and we are really enjoying learning about our new home! We are delighted to be living in such a beautiful interesting place even if we do get treated like tourists all the time!
