    Another early start when our guide, Ivan, picks us up at 6.15am. I still have a nagging headache from the altitude which will not go away.

    start with we feel affronted that the two of us are given our own guide so we
    can travel at our own speed, but the tour operators knew best!

    ... another steep incline.

    What a beautiful island, with another fascinating culture – quite different to the previous two islands. They still follow the traditional pre-Inca ways of running things. Elders control the laws
