Exploring sunny Quito (Courtney Jordan)
Today we left most of our bags and just took things for a few days. Went into the Sacred Valley and started out at the Llama Learning Center. Learned the difference between llamas and alpacas and witnessed weaving and dying of wool. Luckily, we didn't get spit on by the llamas there. Went to a store and bought some peruvian hats. Went to Pisac market, which was great and picked up a few things. I took a great photo with a little girl but, the police thought she was bothering us...we told him it was ok. She was so cute! Hiked in Pisac also. Wasn't a tough hike but, with the altitude, we were all winded. Starting to get a little "crowded" in the group. Ended in Ollantaytambo where Margy and I had the attic room, we were cracking up as we had slanted ceilings but, we must have had the best view in the house. We laughed really hard recalling things that were said during the day.
