Not only is Machu Picchu a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, it also has… llamas!
I may have squealed when I saw the first llama as we walked towards the terraces in Machu Picchu. I mean, it was right there!! And then I looked again, and there were more! It was early and most of the site was still covered in mist and fog, but there were at least six just hanging out and eating grass. If you walked slowly, you could walk right up to them and pet them. It was SO cool!
After we walked around the ruins for a few hours and the sun was beaming brightly, we returned to the same area to play with the llamas some more. We got a few decent shots including, yes, a selfie!
Do you like llamas?? Would love to read your comments below! 🙂
