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.

... not far away from Arequipa, where a lot of activity is happening at the moment and the tectonic plates are very unpredictable. That day alone there had been twenty nine earthquakes with the same Chilian epicentre! The rest of the evening was quiet but secretly I was relieved that we were making our way north in the morning, further away from Chile. What I hadn't expected was that the geology of Peru itself would be next to put us to the test...

Happy Birthday to you!!!!

... supper" with them. Saturday night we finally made it to Zig Zag, the restaurant we were meant to go to on Thursday night. It was worth the wait, such delicious food! And Niall finally got his birthday cake, well not so much a cake as dessert with candles in it but that's just as good right?! We finished off the night with a few beers in a Swedish bar (who knew they existed!) and waved goodbye to our Arequipan hosts Paddy and Veronica.

... come cheap in slummy economies. Owen lives in true mining engineer style in an upsized apartment with no family, more toys than a toddler, a garage full of collectable cars, a loyal cleaning lady and three cats for company. After a seafood lunch, Owen tells Dad and I we should go back to his apartment and swap his atrociously large black van to šair the cadi outš. I am completely unaware of what this means until the wind whips my hair across my face as we cruise along ...

... to adjust to than one might think! Never have I had this kind of time, so it's taking a while to cancel out the voice in my head that is urging me to move on. After all, this is part of my goal- to live and immerse myself in the communities I visit. So I just need to chill. myself. out. My journey South began on a beautiful bus- a mammoth of a bus. I settled in for 15 hours of long rode in the form of first class bus travel- ...

Wednesday evening three of us left Lima by bus, sitting in the panoramic seats at the front of the second floor. Denisse is on her holidays so she will be with us for this trip. It was a long 18 hour ride, 2 hours longer than scheduled. The panoramic seats did us no good as it is dark by 6:30 pm until 5:45 am, however we did see the drive through Chincha. The changes are astounding, up to Chincha (200 km) most of ...
