After arriving on Perurail, you might be eager to get to the top. Because of the crowds, I decided to take some time and buy some souvenirs. The shops all offer the same things, but there are great keepsakes to remind you of the moment. Personally, I found the alpaca memorabilia to be hysterical.
Here is what I bought and what I paid. I had to bargain hard to get them which is my favorite pastime.
- Alpaca T-Shirt: 15 soles ($4.55). This is $2 higher than the normal cost of a shirt overseas but I had to have it.
- Alpaca Hat: 10 soles or ($3)
- Alpaca Sweater (featured in later post): Priceless or 30 soles ($9)
