... the hot springs we set off by bus for the town and the promise of an actual room in an actual building ... We did get this, but we hadn't realised that cockroaches would be thrown in free of charge, a mainly sleepless night ensued for Lisa whilst Peter was charged with squashing roaches. Sadly par for the course with our tour company and guide (Condetravel, never use them!). The next morning began the same way day two ended as we had no power in the dark ...
... mountainside. At the end of today's section, you had a choice to extend the route by half an hour to go via an Inca site.

The train ticket was worth every penny ($85 one way), what many may not know (we wouldn't have unless mum had told us) is that the trip up to Machu ...
... workers went to rest. Once we reached camp our tents were already set up and the porters brought us a bowl of warm water to have a wash. Just a short walk from camp was the inca site Wayllabamba, but only the two of us were up for going to see it. For lunch we were surprised to have a four course meal so when they served us popcorn not long after we arrived and then another four course dinner soon after that, we were all rolling to bed. Thankfully the mega amounts of left ...
