We had a day free before our train to Machu Pichu from Ollantaytambo and chose to visit Media Luna. It was fantastic!! You enter into the homes of the people of the community and really see how Peruvians live. Seeing a demonstration of the traditional method of killing guinea pigs with the offering to PachaMama was brilliant; definitely not something I'd see in the UK! (Don't worry; no guinea pigs are harmed! Although there is the chance to eat one for lunch...) I also loved the weaving workshop; held outside in the beautiful surroundings of the Sacred Valley, you instantly feel the magic of the place as Marleni explains how all those traditional Peruvian knitwear items are made.
