We have been taking it easy to try to reserve some energy for our Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu trip in a couple of days and have just been hanging out and about in Cusco.
We went back and visited Parque Urpicha (the fun park) situation in the middle of Cusco and this time we weren't the only foreigners there. We stumbled upon some fellow Australians and Litlte Miss 8 even made some friends with some of the local school girls and vanished for a bit as she headed to the slides with a gang of girls in school uniform. While she felt a bit awkward with the language barrier - she still had a great time and the girls were very nice to take her into their fold.
After our other museum trips, were were keen to find one which featured more Incan history, so we decided to visit Museo Inka which we thought surpassed the other museums and galleries we had visited to date.
It was more interesting to see the remnants discovered in some of the places we had visited over the past couple of weeks and to read up on the history of the Incans and the Spanish conquests which took place.
Of special note were the mummies inside - we loved these but Little Miss 8 was so horrified and was in tears after the event as she thought they were just horrible. Master 3 commented they were scary but he was just taking bits of information from his sister as he really had no idea what to make of them at all!
The tears however were not long-lived as we entered the Plaza De Armas for a rest and by the time we got home the event was long forgotten.
