    Hostel was very quiet until a group of americans arrived and took over the communial areas, no one explained this to us or apologised. The hostel was clean but our room was more basic than the pictures shown on the website and was just four drab walls a bunk bed and a chest of draws. The walls seemed paper thin as you could hear everything in our room (room 10). Although it was quiet on the evenings and sleeping was fine. The location is good and very safe with shops and banks nearby. The small buses are safe and very cheap even on the evening. The staff were helpful but there were no organised trips.

    Peru - Lima to Cuzco Wed 11th Up early to leave Lima at 6am. Truck feeling a little bit more fuller. Our first stop is the Ballestas Islands. These are a set of rock islands a few km out from the shore, which are home to various types of birds and seals. The smell of bird **** is over powering and every 8 yrs a company has the contract to go to the islands and remove tons upon tons of the bird **** and use it as fertilizer. Arrived into Pisco town during the ...

    Still. All said and done I've made it! Finally back in the UK (definitely in need of a shower and a bed) ready for a few days at home before I start part 2 in Africa, and I can't ...

    ... molto lontani comunque. In fondo questi giorni a Lima sono serviti, oltre a festeggiare degnamente il compleanno di Nina, anche per ricaricare le batterie. Oggi, dopo questa breve parentesi sul mare, ritorniamo sulle Ande in direzione di Huaraz; speriamo di non esserci abituati troppo al lusso, perché ho la sensazione che non avremo occasione di averne un'altra porzione per un bel po'. We are still surprised by how nice this city turned out to be; after all you never know how ...

On our way from Lima, because of some bus drivers who laughed heartily of us, we found out that the place was run by the Hare Krishna. They respected our lack of faith, but it still made its mark on the experience, naturally. We got to join in on a couple of seremonies, which was interesting, with hours of chanting and singing. On one of our last ...

    ... beat down on us.

    One of the things Peru is known for is its food. One of the most famous dishes that is native to Peru is ceviche. Ceviche (pronounced Sa - V- Chey) is raw fish that is marinated in lemon juice, and therefore is considered cooked. It is served with onions and spiced with peppers or aji. Boris wanted Carl and I to try it, so we ordered one from our pool side setup. Once again, like everything that I have been ...
