9pm Friday 12/10, Cusco, Peru.
Most amusing thing I saw today - in the Cusco Cathedral, a massive 17th century painting depicting the Last Supper, supper consisting of a roasted Guinea Pig (the size of a cat) lying on its back in the middle of the table. Unfortunately no cameras allowed but I found this link online! :-)

Also saw lots of cool Incan buildings & walls, from the 14th or 15th century. Very clever bunch of people. It's a shame what happened to them. Photos when I get home as I took them with a camera, not my phone.

Tomorrow I head off on day 1 of the Inca Trail trek. Excited and a bit nervous. I really hope I'm not the oldest, slowest, most-likely-to-have-a-heart-attack!
