souvenirs being sold on the street
Image

i took these 2 pictures because i thought it was interesting they painted advertisements on the walls of peoples' houses or stores. The names on the ads are election candidates for some political offices.
Image

the lady on the right also has a very common hat i saw all throughout peru. dark tan, heavy, round-topped hats. just something that stuck out to me.

we visited a alpaca wool-weaving village in sacred village. they pretty much made everything they made (blankets, hats, mittens, scarfs) from scratch. they raised alpaca and sheared the wool, and they collected and prepared dyes from flowers and bugs and stuffs.

we went to this place that grew... corn! they also ferment corn to make corn beer (shown in the tumblers on the right) which was kinda salty.
Image

we sampled some corn nuts.
Image

and they also also use corn mush to feed guinea pigs.

Ollanta (after whom the site and town is named) was a pre-Incan general. After being defeated by the Incans, his face was carved into the side of the mountain by the Incans who also respected him.

These knobs in the stone were used as astrological markers. The location of the shadow of the knob moved each day of the year. A notch below the knobs indicated the location where the shadow falls on winter solstice (June 21 in the southern hemisphere).

climbing... there are two porters behind mama. For the 13 american tourists in our group, there were 21 peruvian staff to take us up the trail. most of them were porters (people to carry supplies and extra luggage) and camp setter-uppers. there was also a chef and his culinary assistants, and our tour guides, Nancy and Sergio.
