A Market Exactly Like 300 Years Ago

Or 400 years ago

There are many people on the big market square, where the Quechua meet every Saturday and Sunday. They buy and they sell. They see and want to be seen. The market day might be the highlight of the week for many of the Quechuas, especially those who have traveled here from the remote villages.  Many of Quechuas are wearing traditional dresses with the same patterns already worn by their grandparents. Everybody speaks Quechua and things are calm and normal since there are no tourists – only a photographer trying to capture the market activities in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Thousands are waiting while the sun is burning.

Extensive opportunity to compare prices.

Everything fresh out of the bag.
