Ruins and Llamas

I am amazed how many Inca ruins can be seen in Peru.  We came across more on our return to Cusco.  There was a natural rocky area that may have been a natural fort, but fortifications had also been added to the site.

There were tunnels to walk through, some natural, some man-made.

After exploring the tunnels we wandered around above.

Nearly everywhere we went we saw women posing with llamas — not asking to be paid, but certainly hoping for a hand-out for their willingness to pose (and we obliged).  Aren’t they cute (both the ladies and the llamas)?
