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.

... of “white city”.
I stayed a week. A lazy week. I definitively know I would not like to live in places where people do not heat, like… most parts in this world I am realising ;-) If it is sunny enough no problem, but once you are high in the mountains, summer or winter, sun or not, once it is evening it is COLD.
The Plaza de Armas (yes, like in Cusco and Puno) is very animated, with palm trees, the ...

... which is harder than one might think. It was difficult to control the board and maneuver down the steep dunes, but the sand broke our falls. The dune buggy picked us up after our run and drove us to our next dune. Our final place in Peru was its capital, Lima. We visited the trendy Miraflores area and were surprised to see familiar fast food chains and stores from home, including Starbucks and Chile's. Lima's coast boasts steep bluffs and many surfers trying to catch their waves. We ...

We were standing at the bus station at Nazca ready to board another overnight bus to Arequipa. All was fine until Kat, one of our new friends on the tour group dropped the bombshell. "Have you heard there has been an earthquake in Chile and there is a tidal wave warning out for the very coastline we will be driving along tonight?". This was the first we had heard about it but Karina the tour leader said it was nothing to worry about, and as ...

... that if a llama eats it, it will be dead with in 30 minutes. More interesting and exciting facts from our guide. If only we could remember all the funny names!

Uphill was almost a relief. Everyones knees and ankles were sore from the 1000M descend this morning. Okay, it wasnt that much of a relief. We suddenly realised how close this trip was to our infamous ´Inca trail´ hike. Eeek. On the distant horizon was wooden shack. When we made it to the top, the shack ...

... til 7pm 4 hours later. Went back to police station and sat outside while the guy who originally interviewed us kept introducing us as his friends but when I asked what was happening said he was waiting to see. Finally got the report but took us over an hour altogether and then too late to fit in another massage and shopping so just went to handicraft market for Catriona to get some gifts, grabbed a ice cream and back to hostel. Picked up bags got some food ...
