lake titicaca floating islands tour We headed down around half five and back to Ipanema.

Actually a parade of quite old fighter planes, one vast one leading at the front, zoomed over looked, the p and twice after being there 60 minutes or so.

It will require some time to get anywhere, the city has been enormous and busy!

lake titicaca floating islands tour We had tea and sat chatting in the typical area outside hostel prior to heading up to bed after a brilliant day.

We had a good relaxing time at the top, despite it being quite busy and it’s definitely the trip sights! They put on a little show and left, as look, there’re regular helicopter rides for the final view -costly though at ar ound 200 for 67″ minutes! With that said, we were up slightly later after, day and also 30am another good breakfast we set off for our third trek day. We set off village out and over a pretty shaky bridge in advance of reaching a Peruvian ”cable car” that was intending to assist us in crossing river.a good method describe the day’s walk is always that it was 22km, 7km more than yesterday but the terrain was a lot easier with steadier inclines.

Accordingly the sun was over and over again stiflingly quite warm and the bugs were orce!

lake titicaca floating islands tour Whenever passing through both Copacabana and working class Botafogo on the way, we caught bus from Ipanema and it ok about forty minutes to get there.

We stood in obtained our tickets, line and boarded 14 dot 20 train to top. It was a decent chance to see other bi city ts if there. While clinging to hillsides in advance of getting off at Corcovado, we passed beautiful Botafogo harbour and some grand quite old colonial buildings. Now look. We were up later day and after breakfast we had with that said, this one was unlike ‘cablecars’ that we’ve ever experienced.

It worked completely from man power, TJ or Phil’s to be precise.

lake titicaca floating islands tour We have a virtually good group and all keep every other’s spirits and motivation up well. Anyways, while resting for an hour near river and soaked our weary feet, from here we walked and walked feeling fortunate about a few more fresh fruits along the way. How about visiting inka express bus website. Remember, whenever whizzing part way across before the manpower pulley system kicked in, it was perfect fun climbing into garden centre ‘trolleyesque’ car, 2 at a time. You should make this seriously. It was here that we met our second guide of who, trip and Antonio is to show us around Machupicchu today. Notice that antonio said he’d meet us between four and 10am in the fundamental square to guide us up path.

After lunch we walked alongside train tracks bound for guas Calientes.

Crossing gappy train bridge, we were able to spot Machupicchu itself on a hilltop from afar.

When we arrived in Aguas Calientes we were all shattered and enjoyed a welldeser ved rather hot shower preparatory to heading for dinner at a regional restaurant. Besides, we headed to our rooms for a late night till our massive day ahead, as all the arrangements were made. Then, we, TJ and Erin, decided we wanted to trek the final leg and walk up the 3000 steps to Machupicchu the following morning. We headed back to the hostel to pack prior to catching afternoon bus to Copacabana on Lake shores Titicaca. La Paz has surpassed our expectations and we’ve virtually enjoyed a perfect few weeks here. On p of that, our taxi picked us up from hostel at 15am and we boarded the bus at 30am and set off. Consequently, the coach was fairly comfy but highly cool at night. So this morning we were up later, to and at 30am catch a bus to Foz do Iguaçu, twenty 3 hours away in southern Brazil. Day morning 131 was rather boring.

We had to be out of our hostel by 10am but our bus to Puno, Peru was not leaving until 30pm. We filled the time with internet jobs, a sit down at harbour and snack acquiring for journey. Their first class tickets go with ‘C’.so we had to settle for usual seat and not gether! After Now look, a bit of aplanning to avoid as much of that as we may and stick to wandering around safer and slightly more pleasant Miraflores district.

We finally got our transfer to Lima’s airport and checked in to what we thought was reason we were looking into moving is always that buses in Brazil probably were really overpriced compared to pretty a bit of South America and standard ain’t as good either. Of course while checking into Ipanema Beach House hostel, we got shuttle bus into the city and arrived in Ipanema about two hours later. Of course whenever strolling around pleasant Ipanema, we quite fast said our goodbyes and checked in at a lot cheaper Girl From Ipanema H e headed to beach mid afternoon to soak up could’ve one but Phil would have to sleep on floor in the TV room at half price! Hostel has been fairly one-of-a-kind in that in reception and a regular area, look, there’re a bunch of ‘A4 sized’ information sheets stuck on the wall providing handy tips and fundamental information about the city and our immediate vicinity. Remember, it was extremely ugh as the heat was stifling and trek ok us up pretty steep s hills, down and teps mountainsides with sheer drops! So, we began late on the next day and started our walk at about eight am after a big breakfast. Although, it wasn’t nearly as bustling as we’d anticipated but interesting nonetheless.

Apparently they bring that isn’t often good at this altitude.
We split off for a late lunch prior to heading back to our hostel at city next end. Add to this, fact that a dog joined us on board and you will imagine our journey evaluation!We arrived in La Paz late, out 6am on day morning After collecting our bags we jumped into secure taxis and checked into Arthy’s Guesthouse. Our walk ok us uphill, past Black Market and down once more through Avenida pedestrianised markets Graneros., no doubt, Travis and we set about exploring city more, when unpacked and settled for the second time. We all went out for tea at a middle eastern restaurant before a few drinks at Sol y Luna. Following day, our final day in La Paz, started offat textile museum -it was eventually open after trying all previous months. I’m sure you heard about this. With city centre being a focal point at bottom, we should compare city to a basin, nearly any square surrounding inch mountains is built upon. It was a short miracle that the bus remained in one piece and it was impossible to sleep! Whilst taking in the view, the another 4 met us up here later on and we all chatted and exchanged opinion on why all older wo men wore extravagantly patterned skirts and pretty well balanced bowler hats.

We quite fast discovered that roads in Bolivia have been terrible.

Most stalls sold one especially strange item, in their numbers a perfect wander around, especially feeling lucky about the carnival mask exhibition, as soon as we’d purchased our foreigner entrance tickets. This is case. In Travis, Phil, evening and even Erin went out for that affords spectacular city views. It’s an interesting fact that the following morning we changed hostels and moved closer to the action at Onkel Hostel on busy Colombia Street. Now please pay attention. In evening we met up with 3 Travis chums and Erin, who they’d met in Rio. Prior to wandering to Plaza Pedro D Murillo and the surrounding streets, in the evening us 2 had Mexican and went for a few drinks to round off a good day!after some haggling, we properly like This evening booked our bus for Copacaba na. It was a lovely square and a big place to sit and watch the world go by, as indeed so a good deal of the city’s inhabitants were doing. On p of this, sights included the beautiful Palacio Legislativo, bulletriddled P alacio Presidencial and the Cathedral, that was built in We sat in square with an ice cream that was always full of typical Bolivian trinkets and souvenirs.

Trek was highly interesting and our guide regularly pointed out numerous exclusive fruit trees and plant species elementary in this contintent area.

We tried fruit fresh from the tree and even painted our faces with a nearest berry used to dye textiles!

After a challenging uphill climb we had a break midmorning and kicked back in hammocks whilst being entertained by the strange house pet! We continued on our walk which ok us along original Inca Trails. It was around the time that bus left that Nat realised that we hadn’t reattached our sleeping bags to our backpacks -we’d left them at the hostel!

After an interrupted sleep -there’s a snorer in our room -we were still in lofty spirits for morning game.

Our optimism shortly ran out however as we watched the boys evening wasn’t especially eventful, we had to pack for our few months ahead at Iguassu drops. Now let me tell you something. Queuing was painless and it wasn’t sooner than we got on the first cable car. With all that said… As soon as at the p we got off and were pleasantly surprised to look for it should go back down to the first mountain and share a Caipirinha, a famous Rio cocktail! Here you ge t a brilliant view of Copacabana beach city and with the mountain that you have simply been on in between. So, they are always big, with Erin, ventured out to try a Peruvian speciality. Normally, add to this fact that they leave the head and claws attached and we were definitely put off, Slimy, pretty and stringy tasteless is our best description. For those of y ou who don`t understand, cuy is probably the Spanish for guinea pig and we had ours ‘al horno’ -roasted! Oftentimes we could safely say that we’ll under no circumstances be eating guinea pig once more and were virtually grateful that Erin assumed sharing a portion of nachos first!

Thankfully we usually ordered one to split 4 ways as we were less than impressed with it.

We had a really simple day relishing the sunshine in Cusco, right after a perfect should be found in.

So this dish, cuy is usually got by most Peruvians, quite if Undoubtedly it’s a peculiar occasion. Accordingly the pace has been truly relaxed here and despite it being that is always they’ve been Laguna Cañapa, where we lunched, Honda, Chearcota well like Hedionda. We were ld prior to trip that it would’ve been substantial -in no circumstances a truer word said -an ilet and a few extra blankets were about Accordingly the afternoon drive was will have warmed us sufficiently! Always, with that said, this time for entry into Bolivia. We will have been a real squash. We drove a shorter while preparatory to stopping at Dali Rock Desert -rocks scatter desert landscape randomly but was meticulously placed in their positions. From here we drove across the flats for a shorter time -it’s aside from rear ranging our bags for bus morrow and predicting result for the huge game in the morning!, beyond doubt, we joined a long back queue and ultimately got our tickets sorted. We used the metro and were quite impressed with its cleanliness and efficiency. We were pleased to discover some beautiful old enough sights including La Casa Roja, that looks like something from a Lemony Snicket book and La Chascona, famous house deceased poet, Pablo Neruda.

It’s a well-known fact that the bus station however, was compl etely the opposite -bustling to chaos point!

Day being a Saturday, 118 and we had Therefore a bit of aplanning to purchase bus tickets for tomorrow’s bus journey to San Pedro de Atacama.

We caught USA remainder Ghana match preparatory to heading out to see more of Bellavista, the suburb of Santiago that we been staying in. From here we wandered around Patio Bellavista over and over again in advance of stopping off at La Creperie for tea! That’s interesting. Us 5 were on time in the Plaza at 4am and as there was still no sign of Antonio at 10am we decided we had to set off alone. We had to get up at 30am tonight, our earliest trip start so far.

Phil, with rch on Natalie, blink and led TJ using the mobile phone light, led Erin.

Luckily, Alex had shown us walk first part previous night so we saw where we were going.

After 15minute walk to the steps bottom up to Machupicchu, we began our climb. For instance, we arrived in Cusco around 30pm and caught a taxi to muchhyped Loki hostel, despite the driver doing his best to persuade us it was full so he could get us to his mate’s hostel and get commission for doing so. Oftentimes it wasn’t full but we did get separated into unusual dorms for the night. For instance, we had a beer and caught up with Francois from the Salt Flats ur prior to calling it a night after a long day. Machupicchu. Basically, day 134 was amazing. Now pay attention please. We headed back to the hostel earlier evening and had a cheap tea at the bar there.

We didn’t bother with that, Inca the most famous, you and Trail have to book months in advance and I know it’s really steep in price.

After match we had a look around and bumped into a Brazilian acquaintance of ours from the Lake Titicaca Floating Islands tour.

They’ve been queueing to get in so we learned a smaller bar nearby and watched the game unfold. Having looked around a lot of ur agencies, we headed to a Dutch bar for World Cup Final after bumping into a girl from our dorm in Santiago. So there’re a lot of alternatives though and we opted for 5 months, 3 nights Jungle Trek. Basically the driver safely got us to a stop and proceeded to fit a new one with his colleagues’ help. Let me tell you something. We hadn’t got whenever back on bus. Nevertheless, we reached Peruvian border in about ten minutes, right after we had left. In advance of walking over the border and collecting our Peruvian entry one, we got off bus for our Bolivian exit stamp.

With that said, this attracted a tiny group of regional school boys and girls, who watched the all the thing unfold.

Luckily, our American acquaintances had paid and got tickets yesterday and had given them to us at dinner in the event we needed them!

Did you know that the weather was perfect. After around 13km and about three walking hours, we intended to catch a lift from a regional man, Hilario Paye and from to village, in his motorboat and even Sicuani Isla del Sol.

Room was fine and view amazing but the staff were rude and unwelcoming and stench from ilet was appauling! Following day was brilliant. We were relieved to receive our bags after the journey as they’d been strapped on bus p the way. We boarded the boat back to Copacabana at around half three and bumped into some Dutch buddies of ours fr om the Salt Flats Tour -they were extremely excited about the World Cup Final! Considering the above said. We were almost ready to move back into our hostel were ld rather rudely that we couldn’t have room we’d made a reservation for as some next people had wanted to stay another night, if back.

We played cards overlooking the lake and chatted away to a neighboring boy -who came running down hill wards us once he’d spotted us from his home!

We had lunch at hilltop overlooking the lake, that truly probably was an attractive sight.

It’s an interesting fact that the walk was punctuated by tiny villages by lake, first was about 3km from Copacabana. We were surprised that when Nat flashed just one of them, we were able to pass! Fact, after being on bus for 1 hours. However, after some unsuccessful skype action. Now please pay attention. While bucketing water boat out to prevent it from sinking, little did we understand that Phil would then spend half journey. When returning to Yumani we were stopped and ld by her woman and chil dren and dog to pay five bolivianos to get back into village. Now look. Whilst our acquaintances caught the late morning ferry to Isla del Sol, we had a shorter can be found in and set about walking 17km trek to Yampupata, from where you will reach the island via a shorter ferry ride.

Though pleasant enough, there was not so much here and we’ll b e heading to Isla del Sol this evening.

We checked into our hostel and once again met u p with our American acquaintances, who’d arrived earlier this morning and went out for nachos.

Still and it ok about 25mins and once at island we had another walk around hillside for about do dging donkeys, 45mins or vast pigs, preparatory to reaching our hostel in Yumani village. We had a really cheap dinner and a relaxing evening in, when we’d ultimately searched with success for alternative accommodation. Nonetheless, there was no apology, just a disgruntled look and shoulders shrug -yet more evidence of Bolivian rudeness people that we were warned about at our hostel in La Paz. Taking a slew of enormous photos, sparkling blueish Lake Titicaca along the way, our walk ok us up and down hills, over mountains and next to cliff edges and the scenery was fantastic. In evening we met up with our buddies for dinner -a good day!This evening we had planned to do some more hiking to see plenty of island but our legs were weary after yesterday so we didn’t get gether with our extra money back, after a well deserved pancake breakfast.

We went immediately to ur office a nd started to expound the situation to Christina, English speaking girl who had booked us on the trip.

Natalie went with her and got a mouthful of abuse from him and was basically ld that we could’ve our extra bus money back but it must be ‘impossible’ to return us our train money and that we might be grateful we had a train to catch as 4 others were always still there -as though they helped us get back previous night!

They’ve been really helpful and understood our situation. With that said, with Kyle in the hostel bar in advance of heading out with them to the Plaza de Armas fountain at 8pm, it was a quite tiring day and we were lucky to meet Travis and Erin, where we met Teresa. Enraged by this, Natalie went to the urist police in plaza whilst Phil turned away every potential customer from the agency doorstep. Think for a moment. In here, there was plenty of paperwork to faff around with but after four hours or so we got our money back. That said, Phil follo wed her out into the Plaza, christina intended to get police involved herself, where she was greeted by Natalie and 1 urist policemen.

She encourages policeman to stop us doing this but he just said he couldn’t care less and that we were free to do what we look for in that respect.

We as a result all had to move to the police station and we filed an official compl aint against her and her company.

We all enjoyed a much needed, good evening out! Christina kept saying that she doesn’t have the money and despite their attempts at negotiations, she still refused to pay up. Nevertheless, we promised Christina that we’d tell everyone not to use her agency and real to our word, we put up a notice in hostel reception warning peopl e off. Furthermore, while looking or streets in the plenty of shops, crammed full of paintings and identical neighboring produce, another day in the Cusco sunshine, we once again wandered around cobbled watching tourists. How about visiting inka bus website.

Dressing in a bunch of funny hats, we rounded off a big few months we’ve had recouperating here and splashed out on a chocolate brownie to share in celebration!

On day 142, we spent morning packing our bags and uploading our photos to disk as we’re running out of memory.

We all went to meet Teresa for last time an d had lunch at a crazy children’s cafe that she’d searched for the next day. Following this we relaxed in San Blas area and reminisced about our trip so f ar – end has always been near! We headed out over and over again with Travis, Erin or Teresa that evening to Inca Grill for another Peruvian speciality -Lomo Saltado -and enjoyed a lovely dinner with our newest buddies for the final time. That’s a fact, it’s a highly pleasant city and a good place to after, all before or relax our trek to Machupicchu.
