Craft Markets in the Sacred Valley
The craft markets were great fun in the Sacred Valley of Peru. They were a bit chaotic and all the more fun for that. What was really impressive was the variety and quality of the goods - particularly woven and knitted cloths and clothing.
The sketches are from Ollantaytambo (upper) with the Inca granaries up on the mountainside beyond and Pisac ( below), and here's the surprise - selection and especially prices were actually better in Cusco.
