View from the drive between Cusco and Ollantaytambo
Another view from the drive to Ollanta.
A view in Ollanta and some of the Incan ruins (a granary is on the side of the mountain).
Mmm, typical food! (Actually the food in Peru was much more pleasant than this sign would suggest.)
In Ollanta every house had this shrine/offering at the top of the roof.
The Incan stonework is amazing--stones cut to fit each other with NO MORTAR!
More views of the ruins at Ollanta.
The Incans developed some really ingenious water channels and had little fountains like this.
Street scene in Ollanta. The woman is carrying 'pasto' which is probably being used to feed guinea pigs.
View from our hotel room in Ollanta.
Ollanta has a perfect grid of these cobbled. streets.
This is the view from the train on the way to Machu Picchu.
A view showing the 'Vistadome' train setup, which offers great ways to view the incredibly steep mountains.
As you may know, guinea pig is a local specialty. This must be appetizing to locals only(?!)
The morning views of Machu Picchu were mostly swathed in mist which looked pretty cool.
More amazing stonework.
Llama at Machu Picchu.
