    ... I didn't realise quite how close we would see them. They were huge. They were swooping all around with their huge wing spans and gorgeous feathers all pointed at each end. They came so close, they are huge. The young ones are a brown colour and the male and female older ones are black and white. The male has a crest on his head. We stayed there watching them for about 40 minutes. I took some photos but they really didn't do it justice. We then got back on the bus and drive on for an ...

    Afterwards we went to the municipal ...

    ... We were heading for the small village of Chivay, in the heart of the Colca Canyon for an overnight stay. On the way we had a couple of stops, the highest being at 4800 metres, the highest altitude I've ever been at!

    ... were the purest of the people, beauty and nobility were also big factors. The Incan high priest would take the sacrifice to the top of the mountain, feeding them coca leaves to help with breathing at high altitudes, and giving them alcohol to numb pain, fear and resistance. Once at the top they were either killed by a blow to the head, strangulation or (cruelest of all) left to die of exposure to the harsh climate. When discovered, many ...
