The most ridiculous game of Football I´ve ever seen, and possibly the funniest. The most dramatic dives, fake injuries, 200 disallowed goals. The 2 strikers forgot about the offside rule. One guy was subbed on for 15 minutes before being taken off again for being rubbish. The captain scored a penalty then celebrated for about half an hour. Hilarious tackles, wild passes, failed ´step-overs´, giving away corners for the sack of it. The referee had to be escorted off the pitch by riot police for making wrong decisions………..priceless.
Sunday trip to the town of Pisac! After riding the state-of-the-art bus from Cusco, we spent the day viewing the ruins before walking down from the top of the mountain into the village. Some Peruvian food and a 1 hour bus ride back home…..a sunday afternoon well spent.
So, I made it to Peru in the end after what seemed to be a 3-week plane journey, finally ending up at Cusco on Saturday morning. The weather is awesome at the moment and not too cold at night time, although apparently the rain is on it´s way! (I didn´t pack my umbrella). I´m currently staying in a shared house with other volunteers in the centre of Cusco, loads of cool people from various countries (although I´ve yet to meet a fellow English person).
My Construction placement started on Monday morning. At 8:00am, we take a Combi (bus) up the mountain to a village on the outskirts of Cusco. There´s about 8 volunteers and 1 site-foreman helping to build a school for the people of Tika Tika in Cusco.
