      This is a nice friendly hostel right on the main plaza. The owner has had a hostel in town for over 10 years & is a mine of information regarding the entire Sacred Valley as well as genuine volunteering options in the area. The hostel was clean & welcoming. The roof terrace had fantastic views to the surrounding hills. The charm to Ollantaytambo is that it is a small working town; yes tourists come through here in their droves to visit MP etc but you will see farmers working the fields of the very fertile sacred valley. Katty asks that guests contribute to the local community; a 1kg bag of sugar or rice helps in a big way. 4Kg of sugar from the local market cost me 10soles, approx 2pounds. One thing to note is that Katty moved her hostel from another part of town a few years back. Another hostel opened in the same area with pretty much the same name run by an English woman. Poor show really!

      I stopped here as a spur of the moment decision on the way back from Aguas Calientes. What a great choice. This little town has a wealth of historic monuments both Inca & ancient & is set in mountains that look totally like the ones in Glencoe. I met several foreigners on my walks here who told me they had met a few other Scottish folk who …

      ... Aguas Calientes, shopping, and enjoying a nice, relaxing dinner. We went to bed early since we had been up for so long.

      We woke up a little later the next day and were at the top again around 7:30 AM. Since it was now Monday, the crowds were probably 20% of what they were yesterday. Unfortunately, it was just as cloudy as yesterday and now there was a threat of rain. Still, we had a wonderful time exploring all ...

      ... the porters that are traveling back by train. We settled in to a rented table in an upstairs restaurant and relaxed our aching legs while our Green Machine prepared our last, glorious meal. They did not use the restaurant kitchen but prepared the meal in the traditional way that they have been on the trail.


      After lunch, we went to the train station where we had a very nice ceremony to say goodbye to Chef Raul and ...
