... peach bread and a round crusty white loaf to have with avocado, both were amazing. We then took our bread to sit in the park and have lunch. At 1:30 we were there for our chocolate making course but we found ourselves surrounded by a large group from Belgium, yep more Belgians. Thankfully there was two groups today and we were not in theirs. The first part of the course was all about the history of chocolate, from its Mayan beginnings as a bitter drink mixed with blood and used as ...
... we waited around for a bit then had a 1 hour hike to our hostel on dusk. The hike was brutal. Small narrow goat tracks that frequently changed elevation sharply. It was worth it when we got there, it was a secluded self sustaining place that was owned by a local Peruvians who only Quechuan, a native language. Really cool experience staying hours away from ...
Making it to Cusco was an adventure in itself. From Ica, we took a bus for what was supposed to be 16 hours (turned out to be 22!) directly to Cusco. The first 8 hours flew by, as the bus ride started late at night, so we managed to catch some sleep. Waking up was quite the shock though, as by 6:30am we were passing through the highest point in the mountains, which made it a bit difficult to breathe. It was smooth sailing up until the last few hours of the trip, where we ...

But once we made it to the top (Dead Womans' Pass) it was such ...

Here, there's another example of the Incan math system. The water comes out, goes on to a stone which splits the stream in two, and then the two streams pour out like faucets next to each other. What's amazing is that if you held two buckets, one under each faucet, they would fill at the exact same time. That means the stone where the split occurs has to be perfectly level - not a big deal today, but back in Incan times is impressive.
