Day 10 - Homestay on Amantani

Rafting the Urubamba River
Rafting the Urubamba River
In the morning, I took a hike around the island before breakfast. We visited the island's small museum to see the pre-Incan mummies that had recently been found on the island and then boarded small sail boats to sail to Amantani Island where the group splits up for our homestays.

I stayed with Ignacio, his wife Olga and their four children. It was wonderful to see how the family and enjoy their hospitality – squeezing into their small kitchen for meals and conversing with them using my very poor spanish. It turned out that Ignacio & I had several interests in common and he asked me almost as many questions as I asked him. In the evening, we are provided with local traditional clothing for another evening of dancing.
