Llamas, Pisac Market, and Ollantaytambo Fortress

Our first full day in Cusco was action-packed.  We met at the Academia and set off to explore the rich history and culture of the highlands.  Our first stop was the Awakancha Breeding Cooperative.  We had a chance to feed the Al Pacas and Llamas and then learned how the wool from these animals is spun, dyed and then woven into beautifully intricate patterns.

After that we moved on the  Pisac Artesian Marketplace, where we got our fill of trinkets and treasures to bring home to our family and friends.  Some for me to of course!  

We spent the afternoon in the Sacred Valley at Ollantaytambo the gateway to Machu Picchu.  We had a guided tour and explored the ruins while learning about Inkan history.  

Kaisy  and I spent the evening with our host family showing them pictures of our families and the college.

Hasta Luego!
