We had been promised a rafting trip, weather permitting. Well, could the weather been any better with occasional small cloud in an otherwise clear blue sky? No, it was perfect, as far as my observation was concerned.

The river was rather calm, at least where we took off - what did I expect with most of the participants inexperienced; class V rapids? It turned out that the river was flowing much faster than it appeared from a distance.

Now it's time to say Good Bye to Ollantaytambo. Next we are heading to visit a local beer brewer. Now, normally I would place all of the day's photos on a single page, but there's just too many of them, so the day will be continued on the next page.
