One of the first things you see is the Cristo statue to the east overlooking the city and then the mountains to the north. After a brief orientation at the office, we took a walking tour of the city. One stop that I remember well is the 25 de Mayo market, a supermarket of sorts with maybe 100 stalls of fruits, veggies, grains, toiletries and other such things you usually see in a supermarket. The difference here is that you are buying directly from local producers/vendors rather than from a multinational company.
I finished the day by attending a discussion on the indigenous Quechua language, its history & significance, and current policies to preserve it. All in all “un buen primer día”.
