Some Fun and a Little :(

A travel blog entry by amdouet


... to the canyon region. We made one stop on our way up for coca tea. Coca tea is supposed to help with altitude sickness - yeah, right. From there we made our way up to 4,910 meters above sea level (16,108 feet) for a wonderful view of the volcanoes surrounding the area. After our photo stop, we headed for Chivay, a small town to stay in for the night. This is where... :(#2 ...occurred. I figured the altitude would affect me, but WOW!!! In Chivay we were ...

Not particularly happy with this post, FYI.

Vomiting over Nasca and following the condors!

A travel blog entry by humpooper


... pay another $20 when we arrived as our tour didn't take in 'all the lines'. I fail to believe that was the case, but we couldn't argue. I was then told they needed my passport, which I hadn't brought. It didn't occur to me that a scenic flight would need my international travel documents, but in saying this, I left it with my bags alone at the hostel which was stupid. After pleading with them they accepted my photocopies that we carry around for tourist police and buying ...
