We had another great day today touring outside of Cusco in the Sacred Valley, so called because of the fertile soil that is found in this area.
We visited the Pisac archeological site and saw how the Incas buried their dead in the shallow caves found in the side of the mountain. We spent some time at Ollantaytambo learning more about how the Incas terraced their land and irrigated their fields.
Finally, we visited Chinchero, where we saw a demonstration by local weavers of their traditional technique using natural vegetable dyes.
We’re all doing very well and are excited to hit the trail tomorrow morning. Thanks for following!
