Nov 22, 2011 - Lares Trail: Lares to Huacahuasi

THE LARES TRAIL TREK BEGINS We are up at 3 am! First we head to Pisac. We picked up others for the trek. It is raining outside. But as we get up higher in the mountains we see snow drops. We drove up through a mountain pass and there was a snow storm. Our van got stuck. We got out of the van because the van was sliding sideways and we did not want to be in the van if it slid over the side of the mountain! They do not have guard rails like we do! We eventually got over the pass and started to go down. The snow disappeared and it became rain....

Oct 23, 2005 - Pisac - Ruins, Markets and Some Interesting Shopping

Sunday is market day in Pisac, a small community out of Cusco. We piled into a full suburban "collectivo" - what we thought was a civilised bus service - until an equal number of locals crammed in on route. Dodging llamas, donkeys and the odd cow, we arrived in the bustling market town and visited the Inca ruins. After an hour of exploring and great photos, we hiked back down to town. We spent the afternoon lunching and exploring the labarynth of local stalls offering all ends of Inca wares. Somehow, in week 2 of 52, we have acquired a...
