Ollantaytombo

Yesterday we took the bus to the town of Ollantaytombo.




It is the site of yet another wonderful example of ancient Incan ingenuity.



Those two buildings on the rock face are where the Incans stored their grain and other foods.  They were fond of heights as a means of protection.




After spending the day here, we took a late afternoon train to Aguascalientes, the town at the base of Machu Picchu.  It rained hard in the night, but I'm hoping the weather clears for the day ahead.  I can't wait!
