Market day in Pisac

The market days on Pisac are on Thursdays and Sundays. Sundays are specially lively because is also the day the locals go tho the church for the morning mass. After the mass is over they usually visit the market to buy whatever they need. I was fascinated by the colorful garments that some of the people wear.

The girls decorate their heads and their toys with flowers.

Chullos are knitted hats with wonderful patterns on it. I was able to buy several of them. The designs are incredible beautiful

This baby alpaca was resting inside the shop where I bough the chullos

And more market pictures:

A woman was selling these pigments for dyeing fibers

This child was very content with his ice cream

More pictures to come…
