Day 6, pt 1: Return to the city of Cusco! Before I leave the Amazon, guide Gilbert uses traditional blue dye to inscribe an Incan hummingbird tattoo on my arm.

My next destination is the Main Square & yet another church, the beautiful San Cristobal Church, located on top of a hill over1ooking the city
