... rebuilt several times and a spire rebuilt as recently as 2000. The park square is busy with tourists and touts but still leasant with the trees , fountain and pigeons. We wandered up the pedestrian street where it is busy with shoppers and restaurants and find a local restaurant with a set menu and have a warming soup and set meat and rice dish and warm pear juice whic is surprisingly delicious. After thus we head down to the square again to take the ...

Our next stop onwards from Cusco was Arequipa! To me, this seemed like the most "normal" city, or maybe I'm just getting used to Latin American cities. Arequipa is pretty big, and again like in Cusco we only walked around the main squares and plazas, especially since we were only staying for a couple of days.

... decided to follow our sketchily drawn map to the street where most of the hostels were, we hadn't booked ahead, because we couldn't find anywhere on our usual booking sites. It was a bit scary, what happens if we couldn't find anywhere! Thankfully we found a local hostel at local prices and dumped our bags off. The next challenge was to find out how to get to Caral. There was a tourist information with very helpful and friendly girls, but they couldn't speak a word of ...
