Ollantaytambo, part ii

After our bike ride, Sarah and I explored more of the town.  I saw a kitten in one of the plazas and so naturally, we had to go pet it.  Turns out the kitten's owner is the owner of the highest rated restaurant and hotel in Sacred Valley on TripAdvisor, called El Albergue.  I had read about the hotel before and wanted to stay there but they were booked.  It is crazy that one of the best hotels in Sacred Valley is only $67 a night.  But that is Peru for you! Anyways, the owner, Christian, told us to come for dinner and he would give us a discount.  We went and had alpaca (gulp!), pesto pasta, and a delicious arugula salad.  Christian hooked us up with a room at the hotel and a private tour of the hotel's farm which is where 80% of the restaurant's food comes from.  Quinoa, tomatoes, artichoke, brussel sprouts, lavender, arugula, corn, squash, cucumber, broccoli, and on and on.  Oh and bunnies, lambs, turkeys, and... guinea pigs (RIP Mr. Sniffles).  Needless to say, this was really cool.. I am so glad I ran after that little kitten.

Some more pictures in Ollantaytambo and our hike to the ruins. Of course, a photoshoot was necessary because Sarah bought a new Peruvian blanket. Get ready for more than one cute picture of Sarah..
