Puno and Lake Titicaca

Tuesday, 12 Aug 2008 | Views [459] | Comments [1]

Puno is a small and quite boring town, tourists come here mainly to visit the famous lake Titicaca. It's like a giant market, where people continuously try to sell you knitwear, rugs, and a multitude of alpaca things. We arrived in the late afternoon ... Read more >

Cuzco and preparing for the Inca Trail

Sunday, 3 Aug 2008 | Views [493]

An all day bus journey yesterday was split only by a stop in the national park where we were lucky enough to see flamingos in the lagoon, and a half hour lunch stop for a picnic in the strangest place we´ve yet seen. There was nobody in the square ... Read more >

The White City and Colca Canyon

Friday, 1 Aug 2008 | Views [671]

A night bus from Nazca brought us to ´the White City´, or Arequipa early in the morning on the 30th July and from the bus station we got a minibus to the hotel. We took a walking tour with Alfredo to see the main sights around the centre, ... Read more >

Nazca

Tuesday, 29 Jul 2008 | Views [644] | Comments [1]

After all the destruction and poverty in Pisco, Nazca's main square seemed wonderful the night we arrived. It took me another day to realise that it is just a little town, which would probably not be worth visiting if it had not been for the famous Nazca ... Read more >

Ballestas Islands and Sandboarding in Oasis Huacachina

Monday, 28 Jul 2008 | Views [477]

On our second day in Pisco we got up early in the morning to see the reason of our visit to the destroyed town, the Ballestas Islands. They are special because of the number of various bird species living there and besides the birds, you can see humbolt ... Read more >


Piscos in Pisco

Sunday, 27 Jul 2008 | Views [409]

After an uneventful journey we arrived in Pisco, and we knew there had been an earthquake here in august last year but we were not prepared for the level of destruction in this town. Apparently 85 percent of the town was destroyed and its now quite unsafe ... Read more >

Lovely Lima

Saturday, 26 Jul 2008 | Views [531]

We left Hunachaco from a very unusual bus terminal where we booked our lugage in like on a plane and we were very surprised to have our hand luggage checked as well before boarding! When we got on the bus the similarity with a flight did not stop there ... Read more >

We left Mancora at 3.30pm and travelled to Trujillo by bus, arriving at 1.40am on the 24th. We stopped at 9.30pm for dinner. It wasn´t very nice and we left quite a bit. Some boys were standing outside trying to attract our attention, but we ignored ... Read more >

The sea at Mancora

Wednesday, 23 Jul 2008 | Views [571]

Mancora is a great sea side town, and apparently very busy in hgh season and with superb weather all year. It's fairly quiet at the moment but there are still a lot of Americans and other foreigners here.  I particularly like the ... Read more >

Goodbye Ecuador, Hello Peru

Sunday, 20 Jul 2008 | Views [1195]

Today we left Ecuador, and it was a 5 hour journey to the border. After getting on the bus Diego told us that this public bus had a toilet on board but with a dead straight face ´only for girls, and only for number ones.´ ... Read more >
