Cusco, Peru, July 30, 2003 — We arrived in the beautiful city of Cusco on Day 53 of our trip. Cusco is a great little tourist town, and it’s the jumping off point for Machu Picchu and Peru’s Sacred Valley of amazing Incan ruins and other sites.
Back in 2003, digital photo technology was still new to me. And it was hard to figure out what to do with all the photos I took when traveling around the world with only a bit more than 2gb in memory cards (plus a Mac Book). Flash cards were not cheap then and things like cloud storage were non-existent (not that we had access to fast Internet much of the time). Sometimes problems occurred. Photos were burned to CDs (I don’t know if DVD burners were around then, but we certainly didn’t have one.) Then they were mailed to my brother Jeff for safe keeping. Turns out some of those DVDs had corrupt files. So, long story short, only two photos remain from Day 53 and one of those is a low res JPG. Nevertheless, it’s the better shot of the two.
I present it here….Cusco’s main square, the Plaza de Armas and the Church of la Compana de Jesus:
