Woke up earlyish and went off to the market in Charunguya with Anais, we were supposed to go with Mathilde and Victor aswell but enver found them. Unfortunaly there was no market that day (the guide said yes) so we continued the road int he taxi to Maras. There we had lunch on the main plaza in a local outdoor food service. After lunch went off to Moray which was a 10km walk. 5 min up the road some local kids indicated a shortcut that we can take through the fields and mountains. 

This seemed good until we came across a rather deep canyon that we were forced to go down and climb back up. At the top of the canyon was another kid 'studying the canyon' who accompanied us all the way to the ruins.

Very impressive terrasses in circles (3 independent set or terrses in circles) nearly 100m deep where archaelogists believed Inca's tested the different growing conditions to improve their agriculture. There is supposedly a microclimate at each terrasse. Running a bit late so we tried to squat a private 12 seater van wiht only three english tourist inside but the posh b*st*rds didīt want to hear anything and hide behind their guide saying that it wasn't there responsibility. Therefore started to walk back when another private van with only 2 spanish woman picked us and another peruvien up. Got  bus back to Cusco (1h). Went out for dinner were olivier wanted to teste Guine pig - so we did- and it was Disgustinggggg. Very strong meat. At night walked aorund town,  watched the results of the American election live (1h) and then went to bed.
