Monday, February 16th - Today I have the opportunity to participate in one of the optional tours offered through the hotel, explore the ancient ruins, or relax with a morning massage. I plan on taking time to contemplate the adventure as it draws to an end. In the afternoon we will check out of our hotel and take the train back to Aguas Calientes, where we will connect to a transfer train back to the city of Cusco. Upon our arrival, we will check into our Cusco hotel and rest.
So what about textiles on this trip? I won't be able to answer that until I get home. However, in my web search prior to leaving I located this Incan tunic (shown above) made in about 1550. It makes me realize as quilters how closely we are connected to our past - even continents and centuries apart.
Tomorrow we will have only the morning to explore a bit of Cusco before flying to Lima - then Miami - then home. Thanks for taking the virtual tour with me. I'll be home in a couple of days - do I get to rest? Get ready for my homecoming report on the journey! What do you most want to know about the tour?
