The 10-day long trip was divided in three sections. We first spent a couple of days in Cuzco acclimating to the high altitude. There we visited the old city, the markets, Chinchero and ate delicious food. After this, we climbed up into the Andes and spent another couple of days underneath Ausangate mountain. Here we learned about alpacas, natural fabric dyes, weaving and experienced my first-ever despacho or offering.
I was really taken by the hospitality of the locals, the colors, the breathtaking landscape, the simplicity of life, the craft and mostly, the smiles. People smile a lot in the mountains!
The photos in this blog post are from our time in Cuzco, Chinchero and Ausangate. Hope the convey the emotion I felt when I was there. I will share some more from the last part of our trip with the people of Q’eros.
