Views along the way:
We arrived in Ollantaytambo mid afternoon to bright sunny skies. The altitude here is 2,700 meters or 8,858'. Our bus ride into this town was spectacular!! The town is set deep into the Andes mountains with jutting mountains all around. The bus had to even back into the lane of our Hostal, Inka's Garden, because it was so narrow. And, all of the streets, wide and narrow, have the original Inka irrigation and water troughs running right next to them, so there's running water everywhere all of the time and you must be careful where you walk. Everywhere you looked, the mountains just soared out of the landscape!
Time to pack it in for us/me, as I was dead tired! I was certainly hoping for a better mattress experience than the night before so I could feel more rested for the next day's discoveries!
