Through the Sacred Valley and Feast-Holding Corridors

From Machu Picchu, we traveled by car through el Valle Sagrado to the city of Ollantaytambo.

You pass snow-peaked mountains, salt mines and potato fields. We stopped at one point to enjoy the view and buy some goods off a cliff in the middle of nowhere. Not long after, we saw a tourist bungee-jumping in the middle of nowhere.

Tranquil is the best word to describe Ollantaytambo. We wandered through thin alleyways with pristine, polished stone walls. Water flows through a carved passage in every path.

Peru has the most beautiful, harmless dogs on the streets. Through one doorway was a courtyard. We stepped into a Peruvian feast. Lomo saltado, foamy limonada and pizza from a wood-burning oven.
