Border crossing & Arica


Peru/Bolivia border

Left for Chile early on Wednesday morning. Nearly missing the bus, I took the 6 – 7 hour journey across to Tacna, before catching a taxi with Juan (what a nice bloke) and 3 old ladies across the border to Arica, Chile.

Day out at Tambomachay


Walk from Tambomachay to Cusco

The first full weekend away in Peru! On Saturday, a few of us from the house got a taxi up to Tambomachay, just outside of Cusco. We visited Pukapukara ruins before taking the 3 hour walk back down to the city. On the way, met a few Llamas, visited a few more ruins before ending up at Saqsayhuaman, which stands over the city of Cusco.

For the rest of the weekend we went out for a few beers, visited El Molino market, ate dinner, chilled out.

Monday was Kaja and Sandy’s last day…….booooooooooooooooo.
