Washington, District of Columbia
November 25, 2004
Don't try to walk here, as it's pretty far from the Plaza and main tourist areas of the city. Just get in a cab and ask for "Molino". Here, you can find imported and imitation backpacks, electronics, toys, games, CDs, DVDs, clothing, shoes, household items, jewelry...all at incredibly low prices. I went to get supplies before I hiked the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu and found a flashlight for $1, a backpack for $8, and a fleece jacket for $4. CDs and DVDs are $2-$3 usually. Wow!
A word of caution -- while you can often bargain prices down in Cusco, they don't really like it here, and you probably won't get too far.
