I was a little sad that we didn't have more time in Peru. All the people I chatted to in my pigeon Spanish were warm and friendly and often bent over backwards to help me. The reading I did before I left on this trip lead me to believe that I would be fending off muggers and rapists at every corner, but that, as I suspected, is just not the case...
Yes, I remained wary, but I managed to curb the paranoia enough to not close myself off from local people... otherwise I may as well have stayed at home!
I don't suppose I've made any major revelations here, but I'll finish by saying that the thing I noticd most about Peru was the colour... I think it's the most colourful place I've ever visited, and there's something about that, that just makes me smile :)
