Notes on the Geography of Peru: Cusco: Photo 85

world pictures Peru: Cusco

We've climbed back up the hill north of the plaza. Clements Markham, for decades an eminence in the Royal Geographical Society, spent some time here as a very young man. He wrote: "The city lies spread out like a map, with its handsome churches rising above the other buildings and the market in the great plaza crowded with Indian women sitting before their little merchandise or passing to and fro like a busy hive of bees." Since then, of course, the plaza has had several lives.

See Markham in Peru, ed. by Peter Blanchard, p. 91.
