Machu Picchu -7 The Sacred Valley

…Another day full of remarkable sights and images. The terraced Inca crop circles at Moray date back to the 13th century, each level with its own microclimate. Then on to the pre-Incan salineras or salt pans at Maras, which create a stunning abstract landscape. Something for the studio when we´re home. We then hiked down to the valley, pausing to enjoy the beauty of the Urubamba river before lunch and a quite afternoon to help acclimatize to the altitude. On to Pisac and Cusco tomorrow before meeting our hiking group on Monday evening. It´s getting closer!…

Machu Picchu -8 The Sacred Valley

…We are now in the Sacred Valley. What a day with unforgettable visits to Chinchero, mythical birthplace of the rainbow, and Ollantaytambo. I’ll let the pictures to the talking. Enjoy…
