Today was a quiet day. We got up and went to a small but well done museum about Machu Picchu which had really interesting photos from when it was first discovered and restoration had just begun. There was also a variety of artifacts found in the city. I thought it was interesting that many of the discovery dates where from the 70's and 80's but there were also new discoveries as recent as 2004. Attached to the museum was a small botanical garden. It was hot today so after we got bak from the museum we stopped at a cafe in the main square to have a snack and a cold drink. While we were there a local group set up and played traditional music, it was a lovely relaxing afternoon. At 2pm we hopped the train back to Ollantaytambo where our driver met us and took us back to Cusco. We then grabbed a taxi to the local craft market where we did a bunch of souvenir shopping. After a late dinner we repacked as we leave for the jungle tomorrow!
