"Cusco, Cuzco, or Qusqo ??" Cusco by WaRPer

Cusco was the city I spent most of my time in during my 2009 Chile and Peru trip. I had altogether 6 full days exploring this intriguing ancient metropolis. Altitude sickness? Well...I did freak out a little bit after being threatened by my friends and fellow travelers. Especially when I was flying in directly from Lima and no time for acclimatization. After all, it wasn't very bad thought. Maybe because I used to be a tough swimmer (believe it or not!), and have a huge lung capacity!! The symptoms only showed on the first couple hours, and disappeared shortly after :D
