... photos of llama and alpaca in a reserve. 3 hours later we were dropped off near the main plaza and had to walk back to the hostel as apparently traffic is a nightmare. Lee and Leanne are staying on in Arequipa but we had to repack our bags and make our way to the bus station for a night bus to Ica.
