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.

Today we had a very nice breakfast in the sun on the terrace then went to town and joined the Countryside Tour on the open top bus. Open top but with a welcome canvas cover for shade.

We passed the rest of the afternoon in the hostel (except when we popped out for a delicious two-course Chinese meal that cost us just 1.50 each) and in the evening made our way back to the bus station. The last Peruvian bus we'd been on was probably the best of our whole trip. In contrast, the one we got on today was easily the worst. It was cramped, smelly and late. It was going to be a long 10 hours!


Alpacas are so soft!

So the night bus wasn't good. It was better hatband our first one but we didn't sleep well. Once we got to our hotel we relaxed for a bit and then went for a walk around the town lead by our guide. We learnt about different places to go and see, places to eat, and just got a feel for the town. We stop at a really good coffee shop and got our fix as we hadn't had coffee in a long while. Once we saw the downtown area Paul and I went to the alpaca museum. ...

... to sit through hearing about it). This meant we were able to enjoy the extra room all the way to Cusco. Very happy with that. Megan managed to sleep a large chunk of the drive. I managed to start and finish (which is very rare) a book, although it was missing a couple of pages in the middle which helped out (although not with understanding the storyline). Looking forward to Cusco and not having to get back on the truck for 9-days :-)

... s city walk got us a bit lost in search of the parks
we could see on the map we had. When we
eventually reached the parks, they were locked and the only things in them were
some Llamas and Alpacas. We walked back
to the main Plaza and had lunch at one of the many Chinese places selling
plates for 5 Soles.
