Learning the ways of tradition with the Amaru Community

You will be collected by a private transport after breakfast from your accomodation in Cusco. The heart of the Inca Empire will have opened a door to an ancient culture that once thronged its streets; today you will go one step further and meet those who still emulate life as it were 600 years ago.   Travel toward Pisac, around an hour’s drive from Cusco, continuing on and up, past the tourist hostels and into the hills where the Amaru people will be waiting to welcome you. A community of less than 200 families who hold Quechua as their native tongue, marvel at the beautiful clothing of the men and women, all of which has been made by their own hands.   Gaze at the fields around you, filled with foods and plants that you’re used to seeing on Western supermarket shelves. Via your English speaking guide, listen and learn about which plants are medicinal, and which are boiled down to make the vibrant colours used to dye of the clothes worn by Andean people.   Try your hand at spinning sheep’s wool as you watch how the fibre is made and refined without the help of machines. You’ll also see the process of making textiles so popular in markets, using framework techniques and incorporating the natural element’s into the designs. After a morning of activity and learning you’ll settle down to an organic lunch, served in a traditional fashion and including the foods of the land around you.  Is it possible that you’ve had such a fresh and lovingly prepared meal? Contemplate this way of life as you’re transported back to Cusco, with a lifelong cultural exchange cemented in your heart.
