It seems during the summer there is a parade every weekend around the central plaza in most Latin American towns and Cuzco is no exception. As I sit here on the Starbucks balcony sipping my latte to cure a mild hangover, baking in the sun I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be watching the day unfold. It's a great position for people watching too. Highlights are gringo tourists covered head to toe in North Face clothing tinkling on their Mac books, hippies in their old VW Beetles doing laps around the Plaza and local salesman offering counterfeit ray-bans for 25p.
