Later during our stay in Urabamaba we visited Ollantaytambo. The ruins were just as spectacular as Sacsayhuaman. HOW did they get the stones stacked so perfectly? Seriously... It was totally mesmerizing to be there, After hiking around the ruins, we visited a community farther up in the hills. After a full day's work, the women of the community come home and weave (as a hobby). As someone how has recently taken up waving, I can tell you that it is incredibly laborious and strenuous work. It blows my mind that they're able to do it after working in a field all day. And their weavings were spectacular. See for yourself below!
