We had been told by someone else about this women's weaving collective, and were keen to do it - we had a spare day in Ollantytambo and this was how we wanted to spend it.
What was special? Being invited in to share the lives of real people. None spoke English, few even spoke spanish, they spoke Quechua the language of the indigenous Andes peoples.
We watched them weave, learned about dying processes, had a go at weaving a bracelet, and shared lunch with them in one of their homes - with guinea pigs under the beds.
