      You arrive outside a blank concrete wall with an imposing metal gate. You ring the bell for attention and a voice asks us who you are. After identifying yourselves, the gate clicks open and you enter a tropical paradise.

      This isn't a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton, but wending our way through the exuberant growth, you can imagine yourself in the Garden of Eden. You are shown your cute little bungalow (no A/C but a nice fan) and have time to wander around the grounds past the swimming pool, lounge area and restaurant (which was closed, it being the low season when we were there).

      At the reception desk you can book sightseeing tours and order food brought in from neigbouring restaurants. We ordered dinner from the local "chifa" (Peruvian Chinese restaurant).

      We woke up this morning at 4:45am to get our bag ready and start hiking back up the canyon at 5am. We went to the bar area were the rest of the group was waiting and there was no sign of Roy. We spoke to Jessie (the other Jessie) who informed us that at 4am Roy could still be heard singing. We decided to wait another 15 minutes and then the group would walk up themselves. It was quite straightforward, just a winding path ...

      We were picked up today at 3am by our guide and taken to the minivan that would drive us 3 hours to the entrance of the national park. There were around 12 people in the minivan but some would just get dropped off, others were on a 2 day tour and then 7 of us were on the 3 day tour. After some split sleep we arrived at the entrap and paid our park fee and then went to a viewing point where you can occasionally see Condors. Unfortunately we ...

      Road to Chivay and Colca Valley: We took a five hour bus ride to Chivay. Along the way we stopped at a herbal tea shop for coca tea for altitude, and other teas that help with digestion, headaches, and coughs. There was also a mixed tea called the Inca tea that is a combination of all four tea leaves. Feeling refreshed and ready for the remainder trip we continued the windy mountain trip. There were hundreds of wild Alpaca and Llama feeding in ...

      We joined our tour on Friday morning and headed for a town called Chivay. It took about 5 hours to get there with some stops on route. We stopped at the highest point which was nearly 5000m - not again I thought. I got out this time but my head was at me big time. The view was nothing to write home about - just mountains. To be honest we are both at the stage that we are sick of ****** roads and desolate scenery - we've been there done that now and the ...

      We leave Bolivia and ride to the border with some trepidation as we have heard a lot of stories from fellow travellers. Our experience is very different. We have no issues and pass through the formalities without hinderence, of course after making a small "donation" towards the maintenance of the police station. We arrive ...
