... liking! But at least this gave you a real insight into how these nuns lived in isolation... Alone in the dark with their thoughts and pictures of Christ on the walls. It was an impressive complex, with so many different rooms and courtyards, as well as art galleries. We saw what would have been the communal bathroom (now an empty pool) as well as where they all washed their clothes outside in basins as large as bathtubs. The most famous nun was Sister Ana de Los ...

... the Dutch family as they realised the scope of the canyon, being used to such flat lands! We were all game as we started our decent.

We got to wander these small streets and see the rooms that the nuns used to live in. There are still 14 nuns living in the monastery and the monastery is still a closed order where family can visit but must talk to the nuns through a iron ...

... to a beautiful sunrise over the lake. The one positive about our rather "incongruous" hotel was that we had "a room with a view". Our journey took us across the altiplano from Puno to Arequipa and guess what?........ We found the alpacas, llamas and the protected wild vircunas, lots of them! What a relief. Getting towards Arequipa we were rewarded with views of the three snow capped volcanos that surround the city. Ah we thought, nearly there........ Now we get to the interesting ...
