... but still lots of black bogeys by the time you get home, and loads of rubbish outside the centre (where the streets are swept). 2. Stray dogs and their offerings.

They apparently found some mummies in the area not too long ago but they won't tell the public where they are just yet. Pretty exciting because they never found any bodies at Machu Picchu. Heading to Lima tomorrow.
