We visited the Incan archeological site of Raqchi, a sacred place for Viracocha.
We climbed to the mirador-viewpoint high above the ruins for an overview.
On part of the trail was like a bower, a tunnel of lush plant growth.

The long corridor is oriented to correspond with the December (summer) Solstice:

The San Pedro natural cleansing waters are for drinking and diarrhea. It is rather like that medicine one takes before a colonoscopy. The Taquileños place quite a bit of credit to the healing powers of this process, so Delfin, Kusi and I decided to go for the experience. Delfin was an old pro, having come here a couple of times, but Kusi and I struggled. The grounds are quite lovely with fountains and beautiful gardens.
