Escape From Britain! 2011 travel blog


On the way to Ollantaytambo we stopped at a remote village where Gap (the company we booked our tour with) supports the local weavers. All the women were in traditional dress and showed us their weaving skills and how to dye the wool, they make shades of red by crushing a beetle. The road to get there was VERY VERY narrow and muddy and right on the edge of a cliff, but we survived!! We then stopped at Sacred Valley and Pisac where we went for a hike around some Inca ruins and then stopped at an animal sanctuary where they have rescued Puma's, condors, llama's etc. We went in the condor enclosure and John (one of the guys on the tour) was holding a puppy which the owners said was fine as condor's only eat dead things but then the condor bit the puppy's tail and wouldn't let go!!!!! He was ok, don't worry! We went for another hike around some Inca ruins and terracing in Ollantaytambo.
