Before we launched into our hike we visited the sacred valley of Peru. We visited a local heritage site where we learned about the Quechuan peoples. We were greeted with tea, a dance, and given local outfits to wear.
We took some fun group photos.
We made some alpaca friends. They just wanted to eat.
We were then lead out to help with the harvest.
At lunch we had a very tasty vegetarian meal made with local foods.
We had discussions about how yarn is colored before being woven into beautiful goods such as rugs and scarves.
The rest of our time we explored the site.
