Happy Birthday Ollantaytambo!

By Suzanne Russell Parker, Trent Shelton, Mark Willcox and Mikka Tokuda-Hall Happy Birthday Ollantaytambo! Nearly three hours in, Awamaki staff, volunteers, homestay families, knitters, seamstresses and weavers marched last, after pretty much everyone else in town: school kids, artisans, marching bands, local businesses and at least one guy wearing a cuy suit.
