Yucay (Sacred Valley) and Cusco

After climbing Ollantaytambo, everyone was more than ready for lunch. Doubling back alongside the Rio Urubamba, we stopped at the Sonesta Pasade del Inka Restaurant in Yucay for a delicious buffet meal. It was a pleasure to try the mostly local dishes, even though we had no idea what we were eating.
