Peru & Machu Picchu
After Machu Picchu we went back to Cusco and took a trip to the Pampas - the high plateau region between Cusco and Machu Picchu. Along the way we encountered this woman sitting by the side of road weaving a heavy blanket. It takes about a month to weave a blanket like this, working every day with a waist loom. Several narrow strips will be sewed together, because the loom limits the overall width.
