... walls, it really is its own little self-protected city. In 1580, a wealthy widow chose the richest Spanish nuns in the area to live in the monastery and for three centuries, the nuns here lived however they liked, until a strict Dominican nun arrived in the late 1800s to sort these ladies of leisure out!

... down the canyon. We managed to snap a few photos, and expected that it should be easy to spot more condors as they are so big, and due to the fact that in the first 30 seconds we had already spotted two.

... destroy the card. I argued that it was not their card to destroy and their machine repair service should come to retrieve the card. We lost the argument because we had to catch the plane. Thank you Paul; boo to Scotiabank. Travelling without a Visa card is not fun but fortunately we had another to keep us supplied with cash. We resolved to use banks after that.

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. So over two hours to go with three and a half oars between the four of us we knew that we had an uphill battle on our hands.

We took it in turns to use the smaller oar and swapped places on the ...
