I made 100 soles in 2 hours (US$17/hour... In Peru).

Regan refrained so we will see who made a sensible choice in the morning. We returned to the hotel and said goodbye to Abi and Tom (Canada) and then had a drink at the hotel bar. We are leaving Peru tomorrow and we will see what Ecuador has in store for ...
