... old woman was making something. Our guide explained to us that he had brought us into a Chicaria, where they brew corn beer. You can recognize a Chicaria from the red flag that hangs outside the door. This particular woman had owned this Chicaria for years. They use yellow and red corn to make corn beer and we only got to try a little bit because if you're not used to it, it can be very bad for your stomach. Our guide then taught us how to okay a Peruvian drinking game. There ...

The troubles really started when we got back from Machu Picchu. The hostel had sold our beds so we had to find somewhere else to stay. We were livid and exhausted after being up for 17 hours straight. We found some real dump. It smelt so bad and the room had the biggest damp patch. Wish I had taken a picture.

The traditional Incan walls are everywhere, they were built so well 500 years ago, that they were the only structures to survive the many earthquakes. One wall, off of the main plaza holds a very famous rock with 12 corners that you are not allowed to touch, perhaps it has special ...

Today we drove eight hours, travelling from 2,500m down to SEA LEVEL, 0m.a.s.l No more altitude sickness! Today marks 51 days since we were last at the ocean. We have travelled from one side of the continent, the Brazilian coastline on the Atlantic Ocean, to the other, the Peruvian Coastline on the Pacific Ocean. The moment we drove through the barren sandy mountains and spotted the coast reminded us so much of Namibia. Coastline on one side and sand dunes ...
