Yuko & I made it to Machu Picchu last summer and shared some egg nog with these cute little critters.
Starting out on the trek at Ollantaytambo - three nights along the Inca trail.
We had every kind of weather - sun, rain, mist and as it was August (winter in Peru) even snow. Here we are looking like a couple of gnomes who wandered away from the garden.
It was an amazing feeling to behold this first thing in the morning. The Incas knew how to use the natural world to produce living spaces that were both awe-inspiring and practical in their design.
