Went on a day trip outside of Cusco to the town of Pisaq. Unlike most tourists who took the tourist bus tours, we took the really cheap and easy collectivos (minibus) instead. SUPER EASY.
We left early in the morning, getting to Pisaq at 9AM or so and starting the 1.5 hour walk up to the ruins. We were there before any of the tourist buses arrive and we had the whole place to ourselves.
I’m not a big history buff and don’t know very much about the ruins. So this post will just be pictures! Cool?
After Pisaq, we took the collectivo to Urubamba for an hour, followed by a short taxi ride. All this journey is to none other than enjoy the best beer (or the only beer that tastes like beer) in Peru, made by a brand new brewery / cerveceria called the Sacred Valley Brewing company, opened in October of 2014. We got to chat with the owners and the head brewer from Oregon. The place was amazing, nestled in Eucalyptus trees, right along the river. Brady and I daydreamed about opening our own brewery somewhere exotic like this. Their IPA was the bomb.
