Cusco, Peru - As seen from Saqsayhuaman Look-out
Andy picked us up at the hotel and brought us to Saqsayhuaman. This is an Inka Site where the walls were built in a zig-zag fashion. On an aerial view, this wall and the nearby mountain represents the head of the puma with parts of its body are the streets and plaza of Cusco. We’ve learned that the street where the Mamasara Hotel, the hotel where we are staying, has a river flowing underneath.
Another main road is also a river underneath and they both form part of the puma. Where the two river meet is the tail of the puma. The puma, … and the serpent are key symbols of the Incas.
