Alpaca and llama wool are different too, but the ...
... more than 5 minutes. Perfect for the muscles after a 3 days of hiking! Feeling a bit more relaxed, we headed for a well deserved buffet lunch. I think this is one of the only buffets that I have personally loaded my plate with just vegetables and salad! It was such a treat to get some leafy vegetables.
We jumped back into the bus ...
