Weaving in Pisaq, Sacred Valley Peru

 

This is a weaver in the market town of Pisac, which is the first stop below Cuzco heading into the Sacred valley towards Machu Picchu.

Have a wonderful week.

Lovely views at Machu Picchu

After a wonderful weekend which included the Yucca Veterans’ Day parade & our Yucca Area Arts Council garage sale, it’s back to the grind. May we all have a good week…

 

Machu Picchu Monday

When one makes that “bucket list” trip to Peru and Machu Picchu, we recommend flying to Cuzco and immediately traveling into the Sacred Valley which is lower in elevation. Unless you are accustomed to high elevations, Cuzco may be a bit overwhelming at over 11,000 ft elevation (3,400 m.)

After your journey to Machu Picchu, you should return to Cuzco (hopefully more acclimated to the elevation,) and check out this historic city.

Here’s a picture from the Cuzco Museum of Art:
