Grant and Megan (Toronto), Brian (Calgary), Jen (Toronto), Patrick & Eri (Boston), Kathleen and Donald (Ireland), Trevor (Calgary), in front: Donya (Manhattan), Lilly (New Jersey), Paul (in back) and Sara (in front) (England) and Andy (England)
We felt so lucky to have such a great group of people to travel with, they made our trip that much better!
the children there are so precious and look like darling little porcelain dolls, they were so sweet
feeding the llamas and alpacas and learning the difference between the two
the Sacred Valley
snack break: empanadas from a local 'bakery'
Guinea Pig farm. Pigs are a huge delicacy there and many families farm them and sell them to restaurants to make a living. (More on that to come)
After lunch and a hot, cramped bus ride we got to Ollayantambo where we explored another ruin and turned in early to prepare for our 4 day trek ahead of us.
stairs, stairs and more stairs. scary indication of what is to come on the inka trail
ps. this was not a good looking vacation for me. I seemed to look like I was roughing it from day 1!
