... want to take a photo of something - there is almost always someone expecting payment for it. I visited several churches during the day - including of course the cathedral. One of the cloisters dating from 1654 I went into had a stunning ceiling, but unfortunately photography was banned. Next up was the Monastery of Santa Catalina which was originally built in 1580. It covers an entire city block - 20,000 square kilometres of rooms, picturesque plazas, ornate fountains and a maze ...

... outside of Peru, but is a lovely little seaside town close to the Ecuadorian border famous for its surfing. I'd decided that after all of my travels (and before I hit the chaos of Rio) it would be good to have some downtime and relax a little bit! I arrived at the most beautiful hotel with a hammock in my room and open windows looking directly over the sea and knew that that wouldn't be a problem! I had hoped to do some diving while I was there and although I managed it ...

... i'm just so anxious to see a condor! It looks unpromising for while and i'm thinking it's probably because of all of the loud people. Eventually 5 fly out at once and i'm speechless. It's like they are putting on a show. I've never been that interested in birds, but these are just spectacular, its hard not to be obsessed. Cousins to vultures (they are definitely the good-looking ones) and relations of eagles and falcons, the condor's ...

... the Peruvian traditional foods, the meat was actually extremely tender and yummy. A relaxing afternoon after a hard days walk, we showered, which was interesting, set outside with cobble flooring and a shower curtain that blew open in the wind. We took a walk to view the sunset behind the mountains, with the English couple we had met and their guide. Another soup to start, with a rice and vegetable main, served with a herbal tea, which unfortunately gave us both a stomach ache. After ...

... a lovely video and a 40 min guide tour, one on one because I was the only English speaker. The Incas believed that if they sarficed children and babies to the volcanoes they wouldn't erupt.

So they would walk up the mountains 2,000 ft and dig a round hole about 1 metre deep. Dress the child in ceremonial clothes, give them some alcohol (corn beer), hit them on the head and bury them with pots, statues and other stuff for the after life with the gods.
