Peruvian Colours and Contrasts – All in a Day’s Trip – Moray, Maras and Kantu Weaving Centre

Kantu Weaving Centre, Chinchero, Cusco  - Peru Colours and Contrasts

Kantu Weaving Center, Chinchero, Cusco area. (1)

On Sunday the 14th of April, a day after I arrived in Cusco on the weekend before Easter, I did one of the many excursions that are available from Cusco city. The Maras and Moray excursion is quite a well known one, although not the most popular, but it is one of the best day trips in the Sacred Valley due to the jam-packed itinerary and especially the colours and contrasts encountered  on this excursion – all in one day.

    Hi Jacques – I’m curious about places at the 33rd parallel south. I saw the waterspout in Singapore looked like the zenithal sun – almost directly across the globe from it. A 13 Jaguar with birthday on the full moon is processing core energy before the release at the Full Moon/Burner, from the 33rd parallel north. Directly below is the Andes at 33 south, also passes through australia and south africa. Did you see the Singapore waterspout? It’s like the cave light, only its water.

      Hi Debra, I wasn’t aware of the waterspout event, but had a look online – very impressive (!), its probably rare in most places. I saw comments online that say that in Singapore there are a few of them every year, although this one was probably extra impressive (personally have never seen one that I can recall).

      As for latitude – you are right that Cape Town South Africa is on 33rd parallel South. So are: Santiago Chile and Mendoza Argentina.

      Singapore seems to be on 1 degree north and over in this region more or less on the same latitude is Quito in Ecuador on 0 degrees.
      Peru being such a big country, Lima is quite a distance away at 12 degrees south and Cusco is at 13 degrees south.
      This page lists all the major cities and their latitudes:

      Just for interest sake – Lake Titicaca has two ley-lines crossing it, which is why it is such a high energy spot – some notes on that here:

      “Sacral Chakra
      Lake Titicaca, Peru-Boliva, South America

      The Titicaca Stone is the geometrical center for the Solar Plexus Chakra of Mother Earth. The surrounding area of Machu Picchu, Cuzco and Iquitos are also believed to have a very high energy.

      Two Ley lines intersect at Lake Titicaca, these include the Male Great Dragon Ley Line which runs from Mt. Shasta to Lake Titicaca and the Female Great Dragon Ley line.”

        Wow – Shasta is not that far away. It is quite a sight to see – a lot of pilgrimages there. If you this place at titicaca it would be an awesome place to make a spirit trip to leave flowers on the Full Moon. much love, Debra Thanks for all the interesting stuff to look up.

  • Jean-Jacques @ Gypsy Café

    Thanks for the Full Moon information and the pilgrimage recommendation, Debra. In fact I was at Lake Titicaca on the 15tth of April. I have quite a lot going on with projects and work, so haven’t posted anything yet, but I went to a special place next to the lake. On the 18th of May I’ll be in-between countries 😉

    • earnestlydebra

      Hi Jacques – I’ll check out the terrain to see where you’ve been. You were covered in Sacred Ceremony wherever it was in-between. 🙂
      I can’t wait to see what you saw.
