... We were heading for the small village of Chivay, in the heart of the Colca Canyon for an overnight stay. On the way we had a couple of stops, the highest being at 4800 metres, the highest altitude I've ever been at! Fortunately I was fine, but there were others on the bus who were obviously struggling with the altitude. We arrived into Chivay mid-afternoon and were dropped off at our respective hotels.

The buildings are also made of volcanic rock and the contrast of wall colours (not existent when it was in use up until the 1960s- they were all white) was amazing. Tomorrow is a bus ride to Colca canyon where the condors live and an overnight stay there before coming back to ...

... up, step by step, watching as the moonlight turned to sunrise. And at the top awaited scrambled eggs. Oh how I have missed decent breakfast food. The standard hostel breakfast here consists of stale bread and jam. The rest of the day consisted of being driven to local communities and having clothing, llamas and birds of prey thrust in your direction and being charged for the priviledge. A little exploitative, but they have to ...
