    Hotel is clean and tidy, all in good working order with WiFi and computers to use included. Breakfast is good and reception pleasant and helpful. Would recommend as a good place to stay for the first couple of nights.

    We were booked into this hotel with our small tour and not one of us were happy with it. Rooms are not sound proof, no tissues, no drinking water, no clock, no where to put your luggage, and as a lot of rooms are inward looking over courtyard where dining room opens from, as groups leave at all times of the night, you are constantly woken.Staff are not friendly and all round this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.

    ... the road to see part of the ancient city wall. I then headed back to my hotel for the rest of the afternoon. I can't believe the amount of KFC's I passed. There were three within about a ten minute walk. We had our pre departure meeting at 18:00 where we met the new people joining the truck and to learn about the itinerary for the next leg of the trip. It sounds like there should be some fun stuff along the way and I hope that it ends up ...

    ... destroyed it. This is a sad thing, but to undo it would be to reverse everything humanity has ever achieved, breaking down the intrepid inventiveness and creativity and curiosity inherent in our nature. No, the only authenticity we can hope to find does not dwell in this building or that, but rather in ourselves, in our excitement when we gasp collectively as jets of water the colour of pearls shoot towards the high moon. Trust me, it is worth ...

    ... mansion in San Jose which reminded us off the massive places off the movie 12 years a slave. Interestingly enough, it turned out to be very similar. It was a place owned by a spanish couple back in the 1700s, where they built underground tunnels from the house, out to the sea port 10km so they could smuggle in illegal African slaves to the house. The tunnels were about 43km in length and were made to avoid the owners having to pay Peruvian taxes on slavery and any ...

    ... American girl who worked there about trips and buses etc but we just decided we would organise it ourselves. We took a walk down to the waterfront for a look, it was really nice with a big upperclass shopping mall with nice eating places. They day was really overcast but we could feel the sun trying to come through. Once we got back to the hostel the clouds had burnt off and the sun was starting to come through. We decided ...

    ... quite a lot of things that I could eat! That rather surprised me. Having two other vegetarians in the group is certainly going to make things easier for me. I had my first pisco sour and it was incredibly strong!! Perhaps it's been a while since I've drunk much alcohol, but that one drink got me quite quite drunk.

    All in all, it seems like it's going to be a good group, though it will probably take a little while to get to know everyone better.
