    ... great company of 15 other volunteers. my Spanish class is going well, and on Friday we had a field trip to a donut shop, hole-in-the-wall, where we enjoyed freshly fried sweet potato donuts complete with maple syrup!! YUM! You'll see pictures from general Cusco life in this post too, including people, markets, and our favorite ice cream shop where the cones are made of sugar cookies. We have already had lots of laughs, and although I miss my family, friends, and ...

    For a birthday treat to myself I decided to visit a small animal sanctuary. The highlight for me was standing right up close to a condor and watching as they flew over above our heads. They are incredible, magnificent birds. It was interesting seeing all the natural products used to dye the alpaca and llama wool. In the evening me and Celine went to a lovely cafe where they brought out pieces of apple pie with a candle in it for me and sang happy ...

After a couple of drinks stops (a number of locals are turning a profit selling drinks and snacks to tourists at steep prices - although they do have to carry it in there), we made it to the top of the track and began to head down into the canyon to our our accomodation for the night at the bottom.

    On arrival at the lodge, we were reunited with Ally and Chris, who we had caught due to the fact that they were doing a three-day hike while we were doing two. We ...

    ... Outside again, we walk around the Incan ruins. The temple foundation is fairly obvious, and I learn that not all niches are religious - sometimes a nook is just a nook! The Incas didn't have furniture, so they used the practical nooks for storing things - like a shelf or a bedside table. However when a temple has nooks, they are usually sacred and for some religious meaning. They are mostly facing east or west, and either are for storing mummies of the leaders, or for ...

    ... Ruli introduced us to our team of eleven porters. Each team of porters come from the same community and the trekking companies usually select the team of porters dependent on the size of the group that they have trekking. During the harvest season, different teams of porters are unavailable at different times as they have to stay at home and help with the harvest. We were told that Peak, our trekking company, has about 300 porters on its books to help out at any one time. So, ...
