Women of Cuzco, we join in celebrating you on this International Day of Women and year round. You are the snap, the dance, the spine of Cuzco as well as the glory of its sunrises and sunsets. Yet you also work very hard and suffer far more than should be required. You love and sometimes win, though often you are betrayed, yet you continue on in loss or victory. You weave the threads of Cuzco together and are the preeminent face the city presents to the outside. May people stop, lift a glass to honor you, and reflect on all you face.
