I felt a bit cheated (I mean can you see it?) although I could indeed make out the pyramid vaguely, until she explained that during the sunset of the summer solstice, the shadows perfectly cover everything but the pyramid and that the temple at the peak is bathed in reflective light. Right place, wrong time.
Kiwi´s ¨delicious¨reward awaited him upon returning. Wanting to experience local culture to the fullest, he had ordered cuy from Irma´s sister who raises them. Unfortunately, he had thought that a guinea pig (cuy) was just a Peruvian pig. I was just glad that Joo and I had chosen to be vegetarians for this trip. Gyu turned out to be the adventurous carnivore this time and devoured most of it within minutes (that said, there´s not a lot of meat on a guinea pig).
As an update to the roof situation, it´s actually been quite interesting to see how the step by step process works out in their roofs. And really, the view from our bedroom window (shown below) is almost as good as the one on the roof. And, as for hanging out, we now roam the streets where we meet people like the Bread Guy (who was kind enough to give us a free sample fresh from his cart).
