Day Three - Whitewater Rafting & Ollantayambo

We are driven out of Cusco toward the Sacred Valley for a morning of whitewater rafting on the Urubamba River. The river was not running as fast as I had expected it would be, but we still some pretty good rapids towards the end.
We had a nice lunch at small place along the river and then drove to Ollantaytambo. The ruins at Ollantaytambo are impressive – its difficult to comprehend how the Incans could have built such large structures so high up a steep mountain. The town of Ollantaytambo lies at the foot of the ruins and has a tourist market and is a treat to explore. For dinner we ate an excellent little restaurant in the town.
