Cuzco - Traditional Costume and Machu Picchu

A nice postcard shows local people wearing traditional costume in Cuzco region, southern Peru. Cuzco region was the center of the Inca Empire and now it is famous for the heritage sites left such as the well-known Machu Picchu as you can see from the postcard below (actually it is also shown on the backside of the first postcard too XD).I am so grateful to my friend (Juris of Latvia) and friend's friend (Ya'nan of China), who  traveled and sent me postcards from this amazing place..The view of Machu Picchu is really breathtaking and the traditinal costume is very colorful and impressive!  (It is strange the postmark on the first card does not have any  date..)
