Day 13 (7-17): Peru Arequipa

Saturday, 17 Jul 2010 | Views [206]

- Woke up at 5 am to catch the 6 am bus to Aplao. Shit - think I am catching a cold. Weighing the pros and cons, decided to get more sleep and rest and take the day slow. It´s a pity that Toro Muerto Petroglyphs is not happening. - Started my day ... Read more >

Day 12 (7-16): Peru Arequipa

Friday, 16 Jul 2010 | Views [415]

- Woke up at 7:30 am again and had a nice hot shower. Two things I really liked about the hostel were (1) When they said they have hot water, they meant it. One thing to keep in mind though is that there is a certain daily quota of hot water in each ... Read more >

Day 11 (7-15): Peru Arequipa (Colca Canyon)

Thursday, 15 Jul 2010 | Views [416]

- It was a chilly chilly night. The bungalows looked amazing, but winds were seeping through the huge gaps between the bamboo stickes, plus the door doesn´t really close. Again I got up at 4:30 am. I guess I just have this biological clock instilled ... Read more >

Day 10 (7-14): Peru Arequipa (Colca Canyon)

Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010 | Views [277]

- Thinking it would be freezing at night, I wore the fleece, the windstopper and wrapped myself in the blankets like a mummy. Turned out it was pretty warm, and I woke up during the night to take off my jacket. Sweet! - Woke up at 6 am without an ... Read more >

Day 9 (7-13): Peru Arequipa (Colca Canyon)

Tuesday, 13 Jul 2010 | Views [189]

- Found out that my alarm clock was not working. Dared not sleep in case I could not wake up for the pick-up. Two other gals (Faye and Teresa) at my hostel were doing the Colca Canyon hike the same morning, but a 2d/1n trek with a different company.... Read more >

Day 8 (7-12): Peru Arequipa

Monday, 12 Jul 2010 | Views [254]

Day 7 (7-11): Peru Arequipa

Sunday, 11 Jul 2010 | Views [234]

- Arrived at Arequipa at 7:30 am and checked into Posada del Parque Hostel. Posada del Parque was recommended by Walk On Inn, so I did not bother to do any research. They let me check in right away, and they have internet access, which were huge bonuses.... Read more >

Day 6 (7-10): Peru Nazca

Saturday, 10 Jul 2010 | Views [235]

- Another early morning. Woke up at 8 am and after much back and forth, I decided against the Nazca flight. As cool as it is, USD 70 for a 30-minute helicopter flight is just too expensive, even for the world-famous Nazca Lines. Same deal for Victoria ... Read more >

Day 2 (7-6): Peru Lima (Miraflores)

Tuesday, 6 Jul 2010 | Views [266]

- After being ripped off yesterday (by paying 40 sols, which is almost 15 USD for a cab), I promised myself this would never happen a second time. Goal of the trip is to walk or take public transportation wherever possible. Saves money, and also the ... Read more >
