Flag of Peru  , Sacred Valley,
Saturday, October 18, 2008

We took a modern collective (van) to Urubamba in the Sacred Valley along a windy rode which took about an hour and a half to reach.  It was thirty Soles for everybody which is 10 us dollars.  You had to go down a huge windy hill to get down to the valley.  Urubamba is just like any other city in Peru except maybe Lima.  The collectivo took us down into the valley and dropped us of.  There we had to find another taxi or collectivo to get to another little town that is the only Inca village.  We found a cheap non registered taxi to take.
 
      We knew once the road got bumpy we were in Ollantaytambo.  Ollantaytambo is in the Sacred valley and is the only Inca village.  There are a lot of ruins there.  On one side of town is the one you need to have a tourist pass which cost a lot of money and on the other side of town are the free ruins.  There aren't very many tourists on the free ones because bus tours do not come there.  The paths are pretty narrow with a steep drop.  James and Monique played house in some of the ruins. 
 
      Walking around town we found a kitchen with guinea pigs running all over the floor.  They let Monique feed them and she really enjoyed that as soon as we left she asked us when we could come back.  We ended up coming back which made Monique happy but were kicked out because a tourist group came.  Monique was a little upset.
