No place is so small…

…that it doesn´t have internet access, apparently.  I am currently at an internet cafe in Ollantaytambo at the end of a truly amazing day of travel in the sacred valley of the Incas.  We saw such an incredible variety of sites today, from the main square and palace ruins of Chinchero, to the agriculture terraces of Moray to the fort and old Inca city of Ollantaytambo. But the site that impressed me the most was actually Salinas. It has been a place for the manufacture of salt for many hundreds of years. There is a salty stream (insert gross joke here) flowing out of a mountain at the site that is channeled into hundreds of stone salt pans built by the Inca. Then the salty water evaporates and the salt is collected. The site has an eerie otherworldly beauty. I have uploaded (but not yet titled) today´s images, so bear with me, but I will still post the raw image slideshow below:
