Had a fantastic tour through the Sacred Valley with our guide Freddy and about 30 other people. Was a bit weird to be in a group all day, but Freddy was really good and we got to see lots of amazing Inca ruins.

Pisac -- cool site that had dominant views overlooking three valleys. One to the Jungle, one to Cusco, and one to the coast...very interesting and quite a stronghold. Wonderful market in town that had all kinds of stuff!

Lunch near Urubamba -- a strange fenced off area right off the road. A bit like an oasis or food and drink! Was a buffet and pretty sure we had Llama...yum!!

Ollantaytambo -- amazing ruins that were huge, but the city wasn´t completed so we could see how the massive stones were moved from the quarry (across the river and up the other mountain) and up to the top of another mountain! Also, an incredible granary for storing food on the side of a sheer cliff to stay cool.

Amazing views of the ranges and the mountains heading back...

Chinero -- quick stop at a small site to watch the sun come down!
