    Bad tour of Colca Canyon

    ... I had to sit crooked with my legs out in the aisle, so my back was killing me by the time we got to Chivay.

    The breakfast was an absolute joke. It consisted of two bread rolls with jam. That’s it. No eggs, no cheese, no ham, no juice. Just bread. So that was awful. We then had another two hour drive to the Cross of the Condors, and the view was pretty good, but we didn’t really see any ...

    ... pictures and then went into the town centre.

    We went straight for cafe overlooking the main square and had a coffee, and watched as a political demonstration went past. Demonstrations are common in Peru; we have seen many. We went to look around the market, which was a locals market rather than a tourist market so was filled with strange fruits and vegetables and a woman selling bags of puppies. ...

    I was quite sad to leave beautiful Cusco but excited for some jam-packed sightseeing and activities with Peru Hop, taking us by bus from Cusco to Arequipa and then on to Lima via some smaller towns. Our first bus driver obviously hadn't got the memo about Peru Hop being a 'safe' company and I feared for my life a few times on our night bus to Arequipa (10hrs). On arriving in Arequipa at around 6:30, we made a beeline for the nearest Maccas :) Mmm McHuevo! We ...

    The most pleasant city in South America?

    ... are in amazing condition - they hardly look a month old, let alone over 500 years. The whole experience was surreal, I recommend anyone who comes to Arequipa to do it.

    Following this, we took a short tour of Casa Museo Goyeneche, a colonial house from the 1550s, containing a museum of pre-Columbian gold, Arequipa's currency history, collections of Andean cultures, old religious art by ex-slaves, original furniture, and the original occupant's ...
