Just got back from the Sacred Valley of the Incas and had a fabulous time! The ruins are so gorgeous and absolutely gigantic! It´s so peaceful up there and it was great to get a break from the bustle of Cusco! Managed to fit 4 sites into 2 and a half days and get back in time for school!
Had a real laugh bartering with all the taxi drivers and in the market in Pisac - got myself some bargins - an alpaca scarf and parrot feather earrings for a steal! Need to get some warmer clothes for machu pichu and my salkantay hike which goes up to 4500 metres!
Went up into the mountains around Cusco yesterday and was taught how to weave bracelets my one of the Peruvian volunteers and i am now the proud owner of an anklet made by both of us! Off to drink Sangria under the stars tonight by the Christ the redeemer statute above Cusco!
