Back to Buenos Aires - and back to Sydney
Our last 2 days in Peru were spent in Urubamba - where we explored the town and found a great restaurant... there are Pisco Sours and Pisco Sours - and these were good! as was the food. On the last day we shopped in Cuzco and visited Saqsayhuaman, a pre-Inca site, and one on the scale of the other Inca sites we have visited. We also shopped and bought ourselves - and our friends and families - baby Alpaca woollen garments at bargain prices. We were also treated to a superb meal at a world-class restaurant in the Museum of Pre-Colombian Art. A few years ago when we first visited Cuzco, such a restaurant did not exist, nor did the bustling traffic. It is now a really busy tourist centre, but it still retains its character, which was very obvious from the window of our hotel where we looked the crowded tiled roofs and busy lives of the local inhabitants.
It was sad to leave but our short stay soon ended and we headed back to Buenos Aires for one night before boarding our plane back to Sydney the next day - thankful that we were not involved in the hassles of passengers in the northern hemisphere who are still at the mercy of the volcano in Iceland.
