Now if you want to see something really crazy, check out the Mercado Central de San Pedro. Not only will you have the usual offerings of vegetables, fresh juices, breads, and souvenir items like at the Cusco Artesian Market, but you’ll get to straight up see butchering of llama and alpaca (there was a dude with an axe hacking away at the body of an alpaca or whatever. I too frightened to take a picture of him). The smell of blood definitely made my stomach turn when I first walked it, but the sensation did go away after a while. Making sure that we weren’t just being nosy outsiders looking in, we started to chat up one of the llama head sellers and she was surprisingly very friendly and open to answering our questions. Definitely a deceptively cool place once you get over how shady and dirty it looks.
