The cute little boy, above and to the right, was having such a great time playing with his dog. Nearly everyone in our tour group took photos - some at least as many as Lynda and I.

The bulls (?) on the left were a common sight on rooftops, especially on top of residential homes. I don't know the meaning of these symbols.

I Googled it and found the following:

There are little ceramic bulls on all the rooftops in the Sacred Valley. They are supposed to bring good luck, and fertility, to the household. Many roofs had a cross between the bulls. Some roofs also have flowers.
