We had looked at doing Colca and but after a few people gave us the 'you could probably skip it' line we thought we ...

Not only did we not get any points but pure Alexandra was in agony only a day or so before a 3 day trek. Going off to bed to rest up we went around the corner to Arequipa's best bar, and soon realised the night was dead. I hung around in the bar watching TV for a short time (the bar was "that" good) and the others headed off to a liquor store... ...
