      A travel blog entry by leemclennan on Jan 17, 2015

      Up at 2:40am for the bus. We were picked up at around 3:20 and collected another few people from other hostels before driving to Chivay for breakfast. Didn't sleep on the bus there and listened to music. After lunch we continued, stopped to pay for the tourist entry ticket and began hiking down the canyon. It was surprisingly hard going considering it was downhill and I ...

      ... homes and the furniture very dark but really lovely; I do love the courtyards, how can I have a courtyard in my garden! Time for dinner, we do seem to be eating a lot, breakfasts are always bread and jam, rarely anything else, lunch, soups and more bread and dinners a great mixture of foods. Well it is a shame we can't spend longer here but tomorrow is another day and we are off again, this time only a 6 hour journey to Puno, the handicraft and folklore capital of Peru. Night ...

      ... a friend and had dinner at a great Argentinan restaurant. Steak, potatoes and wine. Who could ask for anything more?

      With our last and probably worst night in Peru behind us we caught a bus to cross the border to Bolivia. We both slept well on the bus as a table would have been more comfortable to sleep on than the hostel beds. Collie had a unique experience in going to the toilet at the border. When asked for the Banos a lady pointed to a door and collie went in. When he came out another lady raced over and was very ...

      ... an hour or so along the edge of the canyon.

      Another 3 - 4 hours drive and we were back in Arequipa. I think our guide was glad to see the back of us. He'd jumped up and down when someone had moved 6 feet away from one of the photo points to take a photo from a different angle and he'd nearly had a heart attack when we had chosen to go to a cheap local place down the road for lunch rather than the over-priced tourist place he had tried ...
