I loved this (very polite but clear!) warning to thieves we saw posted in the market:
After getting an overview of the marketplace, each family was given some Peruvian money and two photographs of local produce and told to go buy those items and return. A contest! Jack took off running, remembering where he had seen the black corn! He was a little frustrated that I couldn't keep up with him (but I tried - I didn't want my grandson loose by himself in a crowded foreign market!)...
Next: a visit to a chocolate factory (I use the term loosely!) and everyone had a chance to make chocolate. What fun!
More Inca ruins, more llamas, more native culture on our way back to the hotel...
...where we had an afternoon of leisure: we read, lunched, read some more, and then went to the pool before our farewell reception and dinner. It was quite a farewell: Andean food and music, with each kid receiving a pan flute as a souvenir.
We're tired! And another early morning luggage pull for our flight back to Lima and then, eventually, home! It's been a good trip!
