... in a van, extra stops were easy. The little stone church is over 500 years old and we had vicuna crossing the road. I need to talk to Dirk to find out the type of bird that was having breakfast beside the ship when we got off.

We are up early tomorrow for the highlight. Machu Picchu is Saturday. Hoping for a sunny day like we had in ...

Our Udderly fabulous last days in Arequipa

The border patrol officers were apparently on strike, the line was largely uneventful except for people cutting in and a hilarious moment when about 100 agitated people jumped ...

Arriba Arica!

... you think me mad if I moved to South America just to eat avocados?

This was also the first time I had a set lunch in South America. A couple of dollars for 2 or 3 courses, with a freshly squeezed juice. That's right! Freshly squeezed!
