Climbing up and up and up

Picnic lunch at about 10,000 feet. We moved slowly.
Llamas and alpacas

A lot of the trip to Abancay (where we spent the night with friends) we were beside the river. As you can tell, it was raining.

Looking down on the city of Abancay. This was one of my favorite cities.

Breathtaking beauty

Thousands of vicuñas along the way, even in the road.

Unfortunately this bus decided he needed ALL the road on the curve around the mountain. We had only been on the road for 30 minutes. Thankfully there wasn't much damage. He even had the nerve to yell at David and tell him how much room he had to get over. Yeah, we were by the ditch and the mountain.

Notice the difference in the signs. We decided to go to the right so we could save a few kilometers to get to Cuzco :)
