The Altiplano

A travel blog entry by chilledbeans


Staying at an altitude in Putre at 3600 metres and the altiplano at 4000 plus metres is really taking its toll on us. We thought we would acclimatise after a day, but the continual headache is always there. That aside, the area is beautiful and I'm really pleased we came. The village inhabitants look and dress just like the postcard pictures (little miss muffet look-a-likes) with beaming chubby faces under large grass hats they all greet us as ...

We asked if we could take a picture of the alpaca and were told that it would cost 1000 pesos (about ...

Idiots Rule

A travel blog entry by andyandott


... than i, they ply this route everyday.

They then attempted to drop us off near the peruvian border at a ranger station, near a lake in the middle of nowhere and try and convince us that this was Chucuyo. Idiots. Prats. Terd for brains.
