K B Tambo Hostel is THAT close to Inca ruins. See the thatched upbrella? That is the rooftop garden when I´ll spend the evening when the sun cools down.
I must have died and gone to heaven. I´m in the Peru version of Banff, surrounded by Inca buildings, in blasting hot weather, booked into a jewel of a hostel, and in an Interet cafe with fast computers!! At this point I am thinking....´MachuPicchu who?´ I want to stay here. In fact, I´m taking an overnight bag to A.C., running up that Machu hill, and coming back here. I´ve picked a room, and if it is free I´m booking it for 3 to 5 days.
I couldn´t have imagined a better place to stop, and sit, and totally chill. Well, the hostel rents mountain bikes and the owner is keen to show you where to zip to....if I get sick of sitting on the rooftop cafe, I might get energetic and explore the area.
At the moment it is too damn hot to walk around, and I´m taking the time to share photos of heaven with you. Ollantantaytambo seems to be a mixture of cowboy town, Inca settlement with a layer of tourist things to keep you well fed and amused. With all of that, there is something wonderful about this place. There is peace to find and enjoy.
My room is the one with blue cover. Yup, it has two beds and private bathroom.
were here, all you buddies in the Northern Hemisphere.
Oh, and this will cause me to lose friends.....the room is $20 u.s. a night.
