Realxing start to the day where dont have to get up till 7:00. ovely breakfast on the sun terrace before heading off to catch our bus to the mountains, more specifically, Colca Canyon. first stop though is the highest point of our trip at 4900 meters, our bus arrives and it is a small private coach which is just for us which is nice. we leave ariquiipa behind with the backdrop of volcanoes enveloping our journey.after about 3 hrs we spot our first alpaccas and lamas and also a rare animal whose name escapes me. We stop to take some pictures before heding to our high point.it seems strange travelling this high by bus as it took us 5 days to walk to this this point on kilimanjaro. we finally reach our summit and the view is amasing, mountains and volvcanos are in every direction, some higher some on a leval plane with us. it is quie cold, though not unbearable with the sun out. we try ad take it easy as our lungs are not used to this sort of altitude.
after abut 20 mins we get back in our bus and head back down the mountain to our destination for 2 nights, chivay, on arrival i find i have been given a king size bed which seems to have been a mix up as i find out later one of the couples is in singles.
after having a quick rest we head off on a short walk to lear a bit about the capital of the Colca Region. that night dinner is just a snack as we are all stuffed from our buffet lunch.
anyway got to catch a bus now, i am a few days behind on the blog
