Hello Everyone,

As promised, I want to give you a wonderful glimpse into our trip to Peru! Our trip was fantastic! We had a great group of 6 people total! They were terrific. But what really made it great was our tour guide Rosa...simply stated, she was FANTASTIC!

We not only visited Machu Picchu, but we spent a lot of time in the Sacred Valley...Cusco, Ollantaytambo, Urubamba, just to mention a few towns. Although there were really no fabric stores, Peru is very rich in colorful textile weavings. In the pictures you will see some of them.

First a warning this may be long, but only due to the pictures. Here we go:

First the view from our room in Cusco, beautiful mountains and a fabulous church!!

Some of the local fare, yes, guinea pig and alpaca are on the menu. Alpaca was actually quite good never got a chance to taste the guinea pig and I am not sure I would have. They are just too cute!

Beautiful weavings for sale on our way to see some of the Inca ruins. Simply gorgeous!!

Some of the 1st ruins that we were able to view. Boy did the Inca's know how to build, especially stairs!!

At the market, wonderful color!!

Okay folks, that's all for Part 1, but here is one more picture, a glimpse into Part 2!

Check back in a few days for Part 2! Until then Happy Quilting!!
