... cheese ice cream. We had been told by Kerrie and Vicky that we had to try it and they were not wrong. It doesn't taste at all like cheese and actually doesn't have any cheese inside. It is made of cream, coconut and vanilla and has cinnamon on top. The name is because it's made in the same barrels as the cheese. We carried on walking to the Plaza de Armas and found a lot of companies selling the Colca Canyon tours so we got a few prices. We then made our way to the ...

On to La Paz

A travel blog entry by rohanfariss on May 22, 2014

Spent a lazy morning on Ilsa del sol before catching a bus to La Paz. At one stage we had to get off the bus and get transported across the lake by boat. The bus came on a separate barge which looked like it would topple into the water at any minute. It was a pretty shirty day and we had to wait half an hour for the wind to drop so that the boats and barges could cross ...

Canyons, Cadillac´s, Caballitos & Cluelessness

A travel blog entry by looptiloop on Oct 17, 2013

... come cheap in slummy economies. Owen lives in true mining engineer style in an upsized apartment with no family, more toys than a toddler, a garage full of collectable cars, a loyal cleaning lady and three cats for company. After a seafood lunch, Owen tells Dad and I we should go back to his apartment and swap his atrociously large black van to šair the cadi outš. I am completely unaware of what this means until the wind whips my hair across my face as we cruise along ...

Reality of Life

... stop and the saddest probably because the other sights are full of hope and success was the visit to the stone workers. The site is controlled by mafia where they own trucks and come and drop off the tools and at the end of the day they come and buy the bricks off the stone workers. The site we visited was the actual quarry and the workers with old car axils pull apart the rock to create basic bricks used for houses in the poorer areas. We stopped and met two gentlemen a father ...
