Cusco, Peru - Nancy and the Bustamante Family
Ah, the city of Cusco, Peru. A photographer's dream come true. We were welcomed at the airport by Marco and Nancy, and everything went even better than that, every hour, every day! Talk about personal hospitality? Yep! They had us covered right off of the tarmac at the airport!

It's my Llama, and I'll party if I want to!
Two traditional Incan women, towing around their Llama right in front of our hotel. No, this is not normal, they were doing it for cash income. I gladly paid them a few soles for this photo.

In Marco's new office building, this is an image from 1900 or close to that year.
FirAt Paolita's fancy condo she recently bought. We are eating a Peruvian variation of Chinese food. Holy crap, was it ever good!
At the Bustamante Cusco home. They travel quite a bit, and they are looking at mementos from every country.
FirMarco and Judy, admiring all of the world items he has collected.
FirIndeed, this is their garage. The cleanest, tile-floor garage you can imagine. The vehicle just enters their home, with a garden view.

The corner around from our Hotel. Note the original rounded Incan stonework on the corner.
FirThis is a much steeper hill than the super-wide angle lens is showing.
FirImmaculate Incan stonework, yes?

Our hotel, with our very professional armor-vested door guard. He was not armed.
More Incan wall extravaganza.
(Wow, I didn't realize a good looking blonde walked through my image frame.)
FirBut seriously, look at this technique that they used of stone joining. Just amazing.

This is interesting. Look at how the New England Scotiabank adapted right into the Incan wall.

FirStray dogs are apparently very tollerated on the streets of Cusco.
