We started in Moray, a genetic engineering agricultural site where the Incans grew every type of plant. Each ring has a different temperature, and there is a planting site for the summer solstice months, and winter solicitous months.
We were blown away by both locations, and the farming geniuses the Incans were.
After this we were fitted with knee pads, helmets, and bikes, all ready to bike The Andes towards Maras.
It was beyond beautiful. But one of our favorite parts was the fact that ranchers and shepherds walk their herds through these mountains. We often had to stop for donkey, cattle, sheep, and horse crossing. It kind of blows my mind now how exotic this was, and how it felt so normal, everyday Peru while we were in it. Jacob was the camera man, and I’m so glad he stopped to capture many of these moments.
Seriously, one of the most breathing-taking views and amazing experiences we’ve ever had!
