After 5 hours waiting and 2 hours delay at the Miami airport, we arrived at the Bogota, Columbia a little after 5 AM. From there, we were connected to a short flight to Cuzco. My friends flew from CA to Miami that morning had only 3 hours of sleep in 24 hours.
On arrival, our Peru tour began immediately. The first stop was the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Cuzco perched at about 11,000 feet above sea level. Beautiful landscapes, mystical ruins, and indigenous villages.
We then stopped at a weaving center where people still keep ancient weaving techniques and traditions alive.
Here we saw how they used food and rocks to make colors for weaving.
My first time seeing Alpacas. 🙂
Alpaca and Llamas look much alike. Alpacas are bred purely for their luxurious wool which is one of the finest in the world. Llamas have no wool for garments. More about the differences.
