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.

... Lakshmivan, which was very nice. Once again we caught up on our travels and different experiences, swapping stories. David and Jen also brought us our Death Road t-shirts and CD of pictures, having kindly picked these up for us from the downhilling company in La Paz. We took in the night time view from the roof of their hostel (their's was, it's safe to say, a nicer hostel than ours), and said our goodbyes again.

... sun began to drop and even though we were in the city centre, the sunset was amazing. We were at the cathedral on Plaza de Armas and the stonework magically just lit up.

Arequipa is famous, at least in Peru, for it's food and this is no doubt due to the early settlement of Europeans. There is a fantastic mix of indigenous fare and worldwide options. We were still quite full from the late breakfast and opted for a creperie, Crepisimo, close to ...

I took a tourist bus around the town and surrounding countryside which was interesting. We stopped off at an outlet store selling alpaca clothing and outside they had alpacas and llamas in closed areas for you to see. We visited a church that had a viewing platform up some stairs ...

... journey, ending up at Pinchollo, a small village where our hotel lodge was based. A short walk brought us to a viewpoint where we could see the colourful Colca valley on our right, and the start of the Canyon on our left. To put things into perspective, the Colca Canyon has a depth of 4,160m making it twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, USA.

The Colca Trek Lodge was beautiful, with log fires in the dining room, massive rooms with giant ...

... the trip that never happened! Once again Oceania dropped the ball and there was a huge hassle retreiving our passports. we were lucky and got off by 1330 but the rest of our group was not gathered until 1350 and instead of a vanwe had a bus with supposedly 22 people. After much haggling and persistence we finally got him to leave at 1414. I knew I should have gotten off the bs then as he had told me we ...
