Mountain Biking & Beauty Contest
Jerome and Amy in Peru

We went through the ruins at Ollantaytambo - the ones we could see from our hotel room. We started early before there were a lot of people around. After touring there we went mountain biking up on the high plain to Moray. We toured around Moray which was an Incan agricultural research center, then mountain biked a great trail down to the salt "mine". This is an area where the creek is very salty. People make pools to evaporate the water and get salt. We biked down to the highway and got a ride back to the hotel right before it started raining. We went to dinner that night and happened to get a table with a view of a Quechua beauty contest happening in the square
