Pisac to Cusco – Friday, November 4, 2016

Tomorrow we fly out of Cusco to Lima and from Lima home. So today we took a taxi from Pisac back to Cusco. Before we left we wondered around Pisac people watching and browsing. We bought some souvenirs too. 

In Pisac we stayed at the Pisac Inn. It was a wonderful place although all the doorways were only about 5 foot 10 inches tall. This is the courtyard. 

In Cusco we visited a couple of museums and wandered around people watching. 

We did some more shopping and bought some more yarn. Duke says he is going to learn to knit!

Pisco is Peru’s national drink. It is s distilled wine. This afternoon we did a tasting at the Museo de Pisco. We liked the blended version best. 

The Inca walls and how tightly they fit together never cease to amaze me. This twelve sided stone is a perfect example. 

For dinner we are at Morena. The whole meal was wonderful but the desert, Cacao was especially good. A chocolate brownie with chocolate ice cream served in a cacao pod. 

Urubamba  to Pisac – Thursday, November 3, 2016

This morning before we left Sacred Dreams Lodge near Urubamba we hiked to some ruins near the lodge. The hotel dog accompanied us on the hike. 

We took a taxi from Urubamba to Pisac. We are staying at the Pisac Inn. Around 3pm we took a taxi up to the Pisac ruins and walked down to our hotel. It was quite a walk. Around every turn there were more very different and very impressive ruins. 

We had a great dinner at our hotel.
