We had a weekend away in Colca Canyon which is a beautiful remote area surrounded by mountains and beautiful scenery, we had a lovely hotel with hammocks in the garden, a log fire and a llama manning the reception desk (I´m not lying)! As soon as we got their our guide took us for a "gentle stroll" which turned into a 2 hour hike up a steep mountain - all of us were struggling with the change in altitude so were panting up the mountain - not a lot of chat took place but I´m not sure if that was down to the altitude or the kareoke! The village we stayed in was hundreds of years old and all of the locals wore the traditional Peruvian clothes which was really nice to see after being in the cities so much. Can´t help but feel bad for staying in the middle of their village in a posh hotel though driving through staring at them. would have been nice to be able to spend more time with the locals and see how they live their daily lives.
We returned to the city where we did some more eating and walking around then we set off for Cusco which is the main city after Lima, hopefully some more kareoke bars await us!
