We started the day with breakfast at the hotel and the recommendation from the waiter that we should try the tamala's. With the memory of my last encounter with tamala's (when we were told that they were Uncle Henry's favourite food) I suggested that I have eggs and James could try them. Not surprisingly James didn't think much of them but once he found out what they were made from they tasted much worse .For those that don't know what they are, corn flour and pig fat cooked in a banana leaf and a little bit of flavouring. We walked down to the main street of Microflores and came across a procession. Looked like uni students with health background. We checked out the markets Mercado Indio which they say is the best place to find everything from pre columbian pottery to alpaca rugs. It had a very large range of alpaca jumpers, scarves and beanies plus silver jewlery. We then headed back to the hotel. In the evening we caught a taxi down to larco mar where we caught a tour to go into the the city centro to see the water fountains. It was a double decker bus with the top open air. The guide kept saying watch out for the wires as they might take your head off and he wasn't joking.
