This morning Ayul took us to the local market where we saw all the traditional foods and goods that Peruvians barter and buy. My favorite find was a tincture "para hacer el exito" to make the success! Drink this and you will be good :) While we were walking through the market, Ayul nodded to a security guard who ended up following us around the market for safety. Pickpocketing can happen often in these close quarters unless you around always on the lookout. Ayul wanted us to be able to take pictures and focus on what he was saying so he had the guard there to make us at ease. At the end we all tipped him a couple bucks and thanked him for the escort. After the market we went to Sacsayhuaman ruins up the hill above Cusco. Then onto the Cusco Cathedral and later the Temple of the Sun. Every stop was fascinating and we learned so much from Ayul's detailed explanations.
