Sonia has always wanted to visit Ciudad Perdida (lost city). It differed from Machu Picchu in that you really have to work for it to see it. The only way in is to hike with a guide over 4, 5, or 6 days. The trail is the same, it's just the pace that varies.

A nice pace of ...
... No food here. The coastline was right here, not very nice - just a large port and some dirty water! Back inland, the main cathedral was surrounded by a large open space. And it was here that the streets became even more chaotic. Fruit stalls, jewellery, clothes, electronics, hair ties, shoes, you name it, you can find a stall selling it.
