    ... getting a wee boat to the Ballestas Islands. David and Brenda came with us and after some time of waiting we got on to the motor launch with about 20 others and told to put our life jackets on before setting off. I felt Like the Michelin Man! WOW!!! Little did I know what an experience we were about to have. We knew nothing of these volcanic islands often referred to as Peru's Gallapagos we later learned. First we stopped to look at ...

    ... a surefire way to get altitude sickness, however, going straight from sea level to 4,500 meters.

    We decided to rent a car and go it alone. We would just recreate the tour on our own, using the detailed information provided on the terrible tour company's very professional website.

    Oh how wrong we were, the 10 hour journey was much worse than the 17 1/2 hour one . . . We again went for the 'carma' seats but this time most of the bus was semi carma so we had the exclusive downstairs section.

The bus conductor was very proficient, asking to see our passports and diligently writing our names and passport numbers ...

    ... at 6am, is NOT my idea of a good time for lots of guns, explosions, screaming and shouting. Especially from a video screen that is all of 2 feet from my face. The conductor had also decided to add to the ‘cosy atmosphere’ by switching off the air conditioning (apparently the people upstairs were too cold with it on); as a result, we spent most of the night slow-cooking to the soundtrack of machine gun fire.

    As our bus driver seemed as keen for this bus ...
