The city of Cusco is very charming. It feels like an old European village with its tiny cobblestone streets and many cafes. We toured the impressive Cathedral of Santo Domingo, where I tried to recall all the church architecture terms to impress my in-laws. (Ps. I forgot them all, sorry Professor Basic.)
My favorite area of the town was the Plaza de Armas, which was the square where the cathedral was located. The area is very lively with many shops and restaurants and the occasional street performer. I’ll admit the restaurants were not as tasty as we had hoped, but we did have a delicious Italian dinner at Roma Mia. It’s a tiny restaurant hidden in an alley off the plaza, with some of the best lasagna I have ever tasted. If you are ever in Cusco, you must try it!
One random thing I noticed about Cusco, is that the city is filled with dogs. You don’t see any cats, but many dogs. Also these dogs are very focused. You don’t see them wandering aimlessly — they are trucking down the sidewalks like they have somewhere important to be. They even watch for cars before crossing the road! We’re talking about some very city savvy pups. Check out one of these focused canines in my outfit pictures below. I even tried to talk to him, but he ignored me…
