Now here are a set painted over my week in Cusco representing the city from various heights, or looking towards the hills on the outskirts. 

The city is dusty and very dry. It's quite tiring walking around, the altitude affects one, making one breathless, and giving slight nosebleeds  The effect of being nestled so in hills makes the place somewhat claustrophobic.
