Cusco’s Flag and Perú’s Flag

The flag on the left is the Cusco Flag since 1920, the flag on the right is the one from Perú.

In 1534 during the invasion and occupation of the city of Qusqu today Cusco, the Spaniards found the first resistance of qhishwa-ayrnaras and saw between the multitude, objects similar to the flag of strips and pictures of seven colors of the rainbow. The existence and the use of this emblem probably has been from the same creation of Tiwanaku for more than 2000 years. (Source Wikipedia)

2015 in review

Thanks to all visitors that bumped into this blog last year!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Learning in Machu Picchu

Learning that things usually don’t go the way I want them.
Learning that ascents and descents can be overcome if you look for a bigger picture, usually at the end of the journey.
Learning that if you wait long enough, all the pieces of the puzzle will fit together, and the ones missing will show up.
Expect nothing, be grateful, and love your friend(…) as you love yourself.
and be extremely patient.
At Machu Picchu, Peru.
