... At 3,000m it is high. Time flew and before we knew it 2 hours had passed and we were making our way down the trails to the carpark. There are plans to buikd a cable car here which whilst it will bring more tourists it will spoil the remoteness of the area. Somehow taking hours to get here and on foot to do the trails is more challenging than riding a cable car to ge there. Tired we doze in the van till we reach the village and eat our lunch around 4pm of soup and ...
... the town square which is decorated in red and white national colours bunting for the festivities. We have an early dinner and buy some cake to celebrate Wayne's birthday. We're just so relieved the 2 day epic travel is over for now and we made it ok. Sunday July 27th. Earplugs are handy for nights when the celebrations, the bar and the motorcycle revving are just outside your window. Thankfully no need to get moving early and ...
We returned home late in the afternoon after a few hours at the site, with an excellent lunch en route back to the hostel (a French couple chose the fried guinea pig from the menu, its feet still attached).

We had been planning on making the whole trip to Kuelap by ourselves, but unfortunately almost nothing in the area can be reached easily other than by organised tour. Even the local Catarata Gocta (world's 3rd highest waterfall) and the apparently fantastic Leymebamba museum are almost impossible to get ...
... rectangular buildings, it was an amazing feat. No-one can explain why it was abandoned
and forgotten for over 400 years until it’s rediscovery in the 1840’s.
Was ready for my soup & trout lunch we’d ordered 3 hours
earlier and then it was back to town for 6pm. No dinner given the late lunch –
just enjoying a cold one when hear noise in the plaza – some political rally
racing around the Plaza, due to the rain I guess!
