Cusco, without a doubt, was probably my favorite city we visited in Peru, only because it felt like I could explore the city forever. I loved the cobblestone streets and not knowing what kind of quaint alley I would stumble upon next. At an elevation of 11, 152ft, it is certainly a place that you would need to adjust to, or you run the risk of falling ill from altitude sickness. Luckily, there are pills to combat this and I would suggest doing some research on taking them before coming. We were only there for a day and a half, so I chose a simple outfit that was both light and comfortable for me to walk around all day in the heat. It was about 80 degrees in Cusco in March, and was a bit windy in the evening, so I had to put on a cardigan by dawn. I loved the print on the dress and was well suited for the vibe of Cusco. Check out some of the highlights!

Seeing alpacas walking through the streets made me so happy
Colores Galores at every fabric shop. I got a couple yards of fabric for my mom to sew pillows and uniforms:)
Sometimes you just have to play some dress up, although I'm not sure if I can pull this off very well
