Day Five – Pisac, Peru 14-01-2014

Up early again, this time heading east from the lodgings in Cusco, the sky looks overcast from the bedroom window but it might be worth heading out, I walk down the pathways and come across a viewpoint looking towards these distant mountains with the early morning mist still lingering in the valleys. Shot with a 135mm prime and then cropped in post.

From Cusco we got a taxi down to the charming village of Pisac. After some empanadas for almuerzo I took a stroll around the market, taking a moment to buy a hat made from Alpaca wool..

And in the afternoon a taxi transported us up the hill to the Pisac Ruins, an amazing place which we had almost all to ourselves.
