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.

... glide around! We eventually made it to the start of the trek. Our group was us 3 and then a french couple and a German women. It quickly became apparent that the German lady was going to be slow....mainly because both soles of her walking boots had come off!!!!! The first day was just a 3 hour walk into the canyon which was quite fine though quite steep and the ground was quite slippy! We eventually made it to our first home for the evening. We ended up playing cards for ...

... from the outside world with big walls and heavy wooden doors. This, in turn, helped to prevent nuns misbehaving. When the head nun rounded up wealthy girls from Europe to practise a life devoted to God in remote Peru, they continued their socialite lifestyles with the townsfolk, much to the disdain of the priest and sisters. This was clamped down on by a strict sister and, even though not every nun behaved in the desired ...

... cold and late and we couldn't wait for the tour to be over. I really wanted to eat alpaca and expand my cultural eating from cuy in Ecuador to alpaca in Peru, so we went out for dinner at this really nice restaurant called Zig Zag; it was number one on trip advisor and now i know why. We ordered duck, alpaca, lamb and beef which came served on a volcanic hot plate and we also got bibs put around our necks. The beef and lamb were perfection, the alpaca was a bit tough but still ...

Party hard city and Colca Canyon

A travel blog entry by chrisfox93 on Jul 18, 2013

... a 3 hour windy car jouney. By god it was brutal and we had to ask to get out for a breather half way through. We saw the canyon at its deepest point and many condors – the national bird before stopping on the way back at a few little villages. To be honest, I didn’t find the canyon as spectacular as I was hoping but I think that was because I was not hiking it. Still I am glad I saw it and in the evening we all got a bus to ...

... in South East Asia and South America. Because we’re white, we’re assumed to be both rich and gullible. Whilst we are comparatively extremely wealthy in terms of possessions and lifestyle, we’re actually on a very tight budget and certainly don’t want to pay over the odds for things. And we try very hard not to be gullible. We’re not disrespectful, we speak the language (albeit poorly, but we try!) and still we ...
