Instead of going all the way back to Cusco, we got off the train early in
the village of Ollantaytambo. The area surrounding Cusco (known as
the Sacred Valley) was dotted with Inca ruins, so we decided to take a few
days and explore the sights. That night was Mari's birthday, and we
celebrated with a fantastic dinner, including alpaca pizza! The chef
was even nice enough to make Mari a special birthday cake with pancakes,
chocolate sauce, and fresh fruit (which he later pushed into her face...
they claimed it was a Latin tradition).
