The rural village of Irupampa is home to a host of mysteries.  Known as “the bellybutton of the world,” no one truly knows how the crater was created.  The soil in the crater is rich in nutrients, and much of the land is used to grow wheat and potatoes.  While in Irupampa, we helped a local farmer harvest wheat and enjoyed a meal of potatoes cooked inside the soil.  Our hikes across the valley boasted magical views, despite the scorching heat.
