... for Taquile island. It was over an hour to Taquile and I was able to read my book on the way. Once on Taquile, we did about a 40 minute walk through the island to the main square. On the way we were able to pass out some school supplies (the suggested gift) to some super cute kids. In the main square, they were having a festival with dances and artisanal products on display. We watched for awhile and then the group had lunch at the community restaurant, which all families ...

The Road to Cusco

... back with prints of the photo that they'd paid 5S each for - bizarre! We had our first lomo salta do for lunch - am amazing Peruvian dish of stir fried beef with onions, peppers and papas - so good! We had a 5 hour bus to Arequipa after lunch, which turned out to be the coldest bus we'd ever been on, and even all cuddling up together we were freezing! About an hour from Arequipa a Peruvian man got on the bus and came and sat on ...
