The Trip of a Lifetime Part 5 – Peru

Tour Day

Our first stop was a house/barnyard complex near a Peruvian Village.  Here we met a llama, and some Peruvian ladies.

The ladies gave us a demonstration on how yarn was made:  from shearing to yarn production, to dyeing, to weaving.  I really enjoyed this stop.

There was a village nearby…built on or around Incan ruins.
