so in answer the grammar issues, most keyboards, including this one have the letters worn off so i don't always know what i am writing. it is also a Spanish keyboard so the letters are different.
in answer to Cats question i have sampled the local delicacy of Cuy which actually was very nice.
back to the trip. Chivay is the center of the colca region, which includes the worlds biggest canyon. we have to get up really early for our trip into the mountains to look for condors. off we get on our small bus for the 3 hr journey. after what is a really bumpy ride we reach the colca canyon which is massive. also at this point we see 2 condors which are the worlds biggest flying bird of prey. they are the most majestic bird of prey. after a while 9 turned up. i think there must have been some bait for them as there seemed no reason that they would pick that spot over others, after going for a walk along the top of the canyon we headed back down the hill to a small village where a man selling bracelets couldnt move his arm so this aussie couldnt pay him. they had a nice church, much like what you would find in a western.
dinner was held in a trational way with muchos dancing and audience participation. lucklilly though i didnt have to pretend to have malaria so didnt get whipped. had the heater on back at the hotel this time so i didnt feel i was sleeping in the antartic.
anyway off to puno tomorrow ciao
