As we’re starting to get used to the altitude, it was time to get a taster of the kind of terrain we’ll be trekking.  We headed to the Sacred Valley, around the town of Pisac, for a short trek and a visit to a community project.

The scenery here is, as you might expect, spectacular.  However what the group seems to have enjoyed most so far was the community visit, where we got to meet the locals, eat their food (including Guinea Pig, or Cuy as it’s called) and see their work in traditional textiles.
