Cute and quiet

Koala's was a little difficult to find at first but once the taxi driver opened his eyes and slowed down a little it was easy to spot on our third drive past. The hostel is quiet, clean and cheap. Very quiet, me and my friend where the only people there but that was probably due to the time of year. The staff were great, very friendly and chatty and made you feel welcome. I would have liked to stay longer.

Recovery day in Arequipa

... I make myself a nice refreshing salad whilst Aaron enjoys some vegetables with noodles, plus our much needed lunchtime coffees. Aaron is almost falling asleep at the lunch table, so we decide to just chill out around the hostel (as expected after the last few days). I jump onto the hostel computer, upload some photos and work on my new Facebook page as Aaron enjoys a few NFL a games on his iPad. The wifi was working well for once so I decided to FaceTime Mum and Dad, had ...

... off the coast (think a bigger version of the Farne Islands) with lots of Peruvian boobies, sea lions and even a few penguins. It was here our guide said his goodbyes and handed us over to Nilo, a slightly more stressed, crazed and sweaty guide to be sure. He took us to a pizza place down the road which seemed to be the only busy building in the whole town before we put our heads down for the night. Our drifting off to dream land accompanied by a ferral dog somewhere nearby that ...

... on the bottom (if size allows...sometimes I can't even fit well in a dorm bunk by myself-luckily these ones were bigger). Unfortunately as I was leaning over our stuff, probably trying to get my toothbrush or something, I hear a bang! And a snap! And next thing I know half of our stuff and the mattress had fallen onto the lower bunk! Luckily no one was underneath when this happened, and I was still half on the latter so I didn't completely fall ...

Taking on the Colca Canyon Trek

... back into the bus to head to the start point of our hike.

Starting point; 3400M above sea level..

It was now 8am with 7 hours of hiking ahead of us. The sun was beating down and we thought it was best to slap on some factor 50, especially after Lima, especially for the ginger ninja... p.s. yes I am capable of using a key board even if my plumber spelling isnīt the greatest.

For good spirit, we grabbed a team photo before setting off on foot. ...

... We arrived back in Arequipa at 7pm, just in time for a dinner at a local Turkish restaurant, where we reminisced about Jordan whilst eating falafel and kofte wraps!

Today we’ve just relaxed as tonight we’re off again, on another epic bus journey (overnight, 11 hours) to the coast. We’ve sensibly booked the big, slightly more expensive seats on the ground floor of the bus and will let you all know how it goes in another few ...
