    Small hostel that had a clean room and hot water, but most of the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful in terms of information about how to do things around the lake, etc. Small, uncomfortable bed

    ... but people are mainly there to see ancient ruins and the islands of the lake. We did do a little shopping and the cathedral there is beautiful. We attempted to go to mass there but apparently the people at our hostel didn't know the correct time.

The Peruvians make the cutest kids, a little boy Samuel stole my heart today! Quote if the day: Jose to Craig - "so you're the youngest on the trip?" And "he is just a ...

    Wake up call at 5.15am urgh! Peter still suffering. Off to see the condors. An extremely bumpy ride up the canyon for a couple of hours we finally reach our destination. It's hard to take in the size and height of the canyon it's so immense. After a short walk along the ridge we see our first condor soaring above us.
