Another day we visited San Camilo Market, a tradition that has been running every day, 12 hours a day for 134 years. It is a large indoor market with all manner of foods, clothing, restaurants, juices and general market tack. I was told to keep an eye out for the Llama foetus’ that are sold there.

Thirty minutes in and after a minor struggle with a rock, the class 3/4 river ripped my oar in two, leaving me with a couple of nice looking cuts on the palm of my hand.
