... the visibility was disappointing. Thursday's dive was then cancelled, so I was left with no option but to relax by the pool! I met up with Maria (who I'd dived with on Wednesday) and we went for a lovely lunch in town before watching the sunset on the beach. All in all, a thoroughly relaxing time! All too soon it was time to return to Lima, ready to go on for my next project in Brazil. I had one short night back at Maritza's before I was back at the airport again! So now ...

And then the taxi driver gave us a very good mini tour about the poets and revolutionaries celebrated there, pointed out the various volcanoes and informed us about some ...

Volcanoes, canyons and an earthquake

... police to ask for help but as we didn't even have a name for the hostel we didn't think we'd have much luck, so we just continued to roam the streets and retrace our steps until we eventually found it. The tour was great in parts and we saw some amazing natural sights, canyons, volcanoes, valleys and wildlife, but what spoilt it for us was the 'set-up' touristy bits. The numerous stops at beautiful viewpoints and villages were always swamped with people trying to ...

... earnest to get them back with the help of the staff at both Marlon's hostel in Arequipa, and the staff at the hostel La Pascana in Chivay. They sent them back on a bus to Arequipa so we could pick them up fom the bus terminal the next morning. We were so grateful that we had managed to coordinate this. However, when we could not find the right place to pick up our lost bathers in the half hour we had before our bus to Puno left, we were gutted all over again.


Puerto Inca

We braved a 6 am start to see the sunrise of the cactus farm, extremely worth it and I don't think I've seen one like it before. We popped into the town before hitting the road and picked up a 'tuna fruit' a fruit that grows on top of the cactus so very juicy. On the way to Puerto Inca we stopped at the Chauchilla Cemetery that house 1000AD ...

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.
