The lodge is lovely, looking out over the valley with incredibly comfortable rooms, tea anytime and a restaurant serving great food. The staff were all helpful and friendly. We didn't take up the offer of a guided walk as we preferred to relax, enjoy the hammocks and just wander round the small town. We arranged a package with Killawasi including a guided service from Arequipa and a tour in the Colca Canyon for which we had an excellent guide, then onward service to Puno. Highly recommended and do stay 2 nights if your schedule permits.

An early breakfast and we were off again heading down the Colca River into the canyon in search of good views and condors. A little before the official viewing point there was a line-up of buses so we stopped to find that there were 3 ...
Once seated we were giving coca tea to drink while the students and parents filled the auditorium. Then the official part began. Peruvians do love an inauguration and pomp and ceremony! There were speeches and presentations from the village, district and regional municipalities, the principal, the SRC presidents – primary and secondary and of course we had to take a turn as well! ...
... for a walk. We saw a parade celebrating the Virgin. Love it over here. They ended the parade with a bullfight. I didn't like it because it's so cruel to the Bulls. Makes me sick, but I appreciate that it's just their culture and they don't have the education to stop the tradition. I hate the masks at the parades here cos they scare me, especially after the silver man grabbed me ...
