Spending the afternoon drinking a Cusquena and strolling about a quiet town was exactly how I wanted to spend our last day on the road…and it was all in the shadow of a great fortress perched high above Ollantaytambo.

After the Inca Trek, showers and a place to sleep in Aguas Calientes, and one more day in Machu Picchu, we stopped in Ollantaytambo while waiting for the rest of the Sexy Llamas who stayed a second day so that we could catch a familiar (and free) bus back to Cusco. The afternoon was pleasant in the sun, baggage in tow, shopping, eating, taking pictures and playing with cats.

I wanted to explore the mountain fortress, but alas! we were so tired….
