... Canyon trip, our washing and bus ride to cusco.

13th April 2014

An attempted lie in the next day although the guy above Emma up three times in the night huffing and puffing (the joys of sleeping in dorms). We enjoyed our morning talking to Clare, Alice, Joe and Elijah (unfortunately making us a little home sick). We headed into town for some food, we soon learnt that most places were closed due to it being a Sunday (Palm Sunday). We opted for the spaghetti dish ...

Since we had some extra time, we decided to book a two day bus tour ...

I skipped breakfast - the convent, (Monasterio de Santa Catalina) which was first on my list of things to do, has a cafe with yummy things baked by the nuns: I was saving myself.

When I was little, I wanted to be a nun (slight flaw - I was not Catholic). Anyway, if I was going to be a nun, this was the place to do it! The imposing white walls (made of local sillar rock) seem to stretch for miles and once inside you ...
