Some went back to Machu Picchu to do some hiking, and some stayed back to explore the trails of the hotel. Kathleen had to have doctors come take care of her today. She got a shot, pills, and electrolytes. Still on a bland diet.

We found the plaza, as we called it, and watched some hummingbirds at the feeders. Then we walked down the main path that led to the path to see the speculated bear they have in captivity, but we didn't go further because you need to pay and have one of their guides take you. We did see where they grew and made their tea. I noticed a fern trail and an orchid trail, but couldn't go by myself, so I was told.

After lunch at the hotel's restaurant, we took the train back to Ollantaytambo and our hotel where we left luggage! The attendants on the train put on a show of dancing and then a fashion show, after which they tried to sell us those materials. I wonder if anyone on the train bought anything?

This time, Debby & I got a better, but smaller room on the 2nd floor of a cottage with a view of the terrace and a community balcony to sit on and enjoy the late afternoon. Debby & I went to the bar before dinner and had a beer and played Farkle with Peg & Janet. Dinner was a spaghetti soup with mystery meat in it, a stuffed zucchini, and cheesecake again for dessert. I don't like flan and their pudding is too runny.
