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.

Chill day in Cusco

A travel blog entry by ericjon97 on Oct 14, 2014

I had a relatively quiet day in Cusco today. I slept like a baby last night at my hostel, and then arranged to meet Nicole, Scotty, Linda and Drew for Breakfast. We met at this place called Jack’s that had been recommended and it was excellent! I had one of the best breakfast’s I’ve had in South America while I was there. I had huevos rancheros with a strawberry-banana shake. It was awesome!

... how the nuns lived, before the Monstery was partly destroyed in an earthquake in 1582.

Picked up at 8am, our first stop once we entered the National Reserve was looking at wild vicuņas, one of the four species of South American camelid (the other three being llamas, alpacas and guanacos). Vicuņas produce small amounts of the finest wool, which is very expensive because the animal can only be shorn every three years, and has to be caught ...

... possibile toccarli con mano. Arrivare qui da Cusco ci č costata una notte decisamente poco confortevole su un autobus; il mezzo di per se era a posto, e anche pulito. Ma il fatto che il riscaldamento abbia deciso di non funzionare nel bel mezzo del viaggio lo ha reso una sorta di frigorifero ambulante; la temperatura esterna, data l'altitudine, dev'essere stata senz'altro sotto lo zero; quella interna non tanto diversa. Abbiamo anche maledetto il fatto di aver lasciato i ...

Days 50-64: Volunteering in Arequipa Part II

... There was also a large art gallery at the end of the tour and I'm sure all these paintings were once hanging throughout the mini-city as well. Keeping busy has been easy on this part of the trip but getting deeper into December in a city where just about every day has been 25 degrees Celsius and sunny has made it pretty hard to feel like it's Christmas. You see a few decorations in the stores and there are two huge Christmas trees in the town square ...

Mummies and nunnies

... the museum, still frozen. After that a short walk to the monastery, built in the 1500s where the 2nd girl of every family in the area had to become a nun there. The buildings are also made of volcanic rock and the contrast of wall colours (not existent when it was in use up until the 1960s- they were all white) was amazing. Tomorrow is a bus ride to Colca canyon where the condors live and an overnight stay there before coming back to ...
