Chincheros

One of the stops on our drive through Peru was Chincheros.  Jorge stopped at this doorway and invited us in, where local women showed us their wares.

First, we ran into our first Peruvian llamas, which were hilarious.

The women offered us coca tea, and it was very good.  Then they demonstrated how wool is spun, dyed, and woven into beautiful tablerunners.

Of course we had the option to buy some of the beautiful handwork, too, and we did.

We really loved meeting these special women and learning more about their culture.
