Everyone you talk to, especially the locals in Cusco will tell you this is a magical place, same as Machu Picchu. There is a certain energy, perhaps grace with high voltage, again I am not sure what it is, but you can feel it. And some feel it to varying levels and degrees.
Both Cindy and I had the experience, we saw lights. I am not sure exactly what her experience was, so I will detail my own.
After arriving in Cusco, the first night I was here, when I was going to sleep, when I first closed my eyes, I saw the most amazing colors and lights. When I opened my eyes, I could not see them, when I closed my eyes again the lights were there. They were blues and yellow and greens, and a dark pink, mauve almost. The lights were like long neon tubes, fluid, moving. I remember wanting to see them for a long as I could, I was never scared, actually I was fascinated. I opened and closed my eyes probably 2 or 3 times. I dont remember the lights going away, I remember going to sleep. I did not share this with the group for 2 days. Not sure people will believe me, but this really did happen.
We are now waiting for the transfer pick up to the airport. I leave Cusco, my heart filled with a wonderful sense of humanity, a sense of calm, a sense of goodness.
Saludos, and kisses to Maddie and Morgan
