Awesome huge room which resembles something we would see in Old Montreal or in France if it were smaller. It seems that the stone walls are over a meter thick, like some old fortress.

... near to be seen;)). Half way up, we took our first break and after I continued in my own pace leaving Kevin behind. In comparison with the ascent in Huaraz, the dificulty was the dusty way that only knew one way - UP. Luckily, the altitude was not a problem at all, but the steep way and quite a lot of "stairs" of stone made up for it and soon after a fight with my will had begun. The legs grew more tired with every step and so I clinged on my bamboo stick we had luckily picked on ...
... Several hundred items were recovered in the grave, from pottery and ceramics to gold and silver human and animal portraits. Some of these were on display in the museum, perfectly preserved. But the highlight of the tour was the actual body of Juanita herself, incredible to have been so well preserved for 500 years.

... then headed out, I'm not sure if we even completed the last round or stayed to hear who won. It wasn't us anyways... And I use us in a loose term, I played cards for most of it. I'd made a couple of new friends sat at the bar, Miriam and Alexandra from the Netherlands, who not only joined us for the pub quiz but also were doing the Colca Canyon 3-day trek Friday to Sunday and told me about a great agency they'd booked with. The problem came just before we headed out to ...
... bit later than planned. I was a anxious that we might have missed the condors, but the hundreds of people waiting on the different platforms at Condor Cross convinced me otherwise! Condors can apparently be seen throughout the Andes, but Condor Cross is one place where you are guaranteed to see them, as they nest in the walls of the canyon there. As the sun rises, the condors use the rising thermals to stretch their wings (which can span 3 metres at times!) with the ...
