    ... out and eventually pay after a few issues with cards and cash before heading back to the hostel along a different route and almost getting lost going a major long way. We head back to our room to chill out before the rain sets in and it's freezing. We wait it out, do some exercise (sit ups, push ups, etc) before heading down to cook.

    ... was an earthquake near Colca canyon two weeks ago so all reputable companies had the punishing two day trek off and secondly all treks start 3 hours away so we had to rethink the route.
