March 9, 2020: Lawn-Mowers of Machu Picchu


It's tough for people to cut grass that's terraced or growing on step hills, but it's an enjoyable job when you allow llamas and alpacas do the job.

When we visited Machu Picchu, we noticed a number of these woolly creatures grazing on the grass, or resting and chewing their cud.  The grass was well trimmed throughout the site.
