        ... town. Luis directed us to an area that supposedly has some cool ruins. We never did find the ruins but we did have a nice little hike. We saw a cool-looking mountain ridge/peak in the distance and set our sails in that direction. That took us through some high altitude brush filled with cacti and other knee-high spiky plants. It wasn't too bad so we decided to go off-trail to get through it all and we walked past farms down below. We finally reached the top and were treated to ...

        ... I saw the Corongo Police pickup truck driving by in the opposite direction of Corongo so I stopped them to ask when they were heading back. They told me around 1pm. It was only 9am at that point so we had no choice but to wait and hope another vehicle drove by.

We stayed there for about 5 hours and saw no more than 15 inhabitants the whole time, half of which were police. I couldn't help but wonder how people ended up here to live. The police were pretty ...

        ... about a half hour's walk away so we made the trek down and found a farm where there was a family and lots of local indigenous men gathered around drinking chicha and chewing coca leaves with some sort of powder to activate the coca. They were all very accustomed to living super raw and dirty and working hard while still enjoying simple pleasures. While they were getting drunk on chicha and chewing coca, they were also chopping down trees and making fence type structures out ...

        ... and fruit with the dogs. We decided to offer Margarita some cheese, chocolate, fresh pomegranate, and bread as a thank you and she was more than excited and happy with the offering so we hung out with her outside her house and shared a meal. I think after this she was much more comfortable with is and realized we had no ill-intentions. She also explained to us that the reason her family wasn't around was because they were at a fiesta for Easter and wouldn't be returning until the ...
