On our way back from ollantaytambo our last visit was thee town of chinchero. The jesuit church is quite nice, but no pictures allowed. The inka ruins were ok, not too impressive.

We really enjoyed meeting the weavers and learning how they dye the fibers and create beautiful textiles. It was a fascinating day.
