Well worth the 4.30 start to the day - breakfast near the clay lick and display of 3 different types of macaws and parrots. Capobaras near by and just missed a jaguar which two researchers had seen trying to catch - but the capobarra won this time around!

The Salinas de Maras is a salt-producing operation in the Inca Sacred Valley, not far from Cusco and Ollantaytambo. It is made possible by a natural hot-water spring that pours out of the side of a mountain. It has been in operation more than 500 years, even before the Incas took over the area. There are a large number of salt pans arranged in terraces down a mountainside and it's "mined" by a collective of families that have been working the salt pans for many generations. It's an awesome thing to witness and fun to walk around. You can even buy the salt the operation produces!
