I preferred cusco San pedro markets. Cheaper and less touristy than pisac.
Still fun for a look.
We ate at one of the restaurants near the veg market and I was food poisoned. Luckily it only made me sick for the afternoon.

Tucked in a valley near Maras. Impossible to see even a sign of them until standing right on the edge.
Concentric terraced circles. Pollen from many different plants and soils from all over the Andes have been found here. Temperature varies as much as 15C from top to bottom.
The theory is that it was used as a biological testing ground. The different levels mimic the different climates through the Incan lands.

We arrived at 6.20 and there must have been a line of about 500 people!
They started letting people in and the line moved quickly... We were the second last people let in and they locked the gates behind us.
Beautiful costumes...maybe a bit long but worth going to see.

Apparently they hop in a boat and drive 1km before toileting which I found hard to believe.
Also one of my friends claim that the lake water is so polluted from mining that you shouldn't even eat the fish from it! Too late now!
