... meat. My first meal consisted of fries, beef and rice. Yes. Basically if you are a coeliac, vegetarian, gluten intolerant - you get the drift, you will be paying a lot of soles to eat in fancy 'tourista' restaurants or basically buying food from the market, supermarket and cooking at your hostel.

... covered with a blanket of blue wildflowers. Where does the water come from? The fog.

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.
