One of the most shocking things about Cusco were the Alpaca ladies. The alpaca ladies were quechua women, dressed up in traditional quechua clothing and carrying an alpaca. They would lure people with their tiny alpacas and then throw the alpaca into an unsuspecting tourist’s arms. At first the tourist would be delighted by the alpaca, or at least until they were forced to pay for an alpaca picture that they did not ask for. Following the encounter, every time the alpaca ladies would see the tourist again they would chase her down the street, attempting to toss their alpaca at them. Overall, not too great of an experience.
