  La paz, Bolivia
We already changed country
Sorry, but we don t write so much news in english.

Since the last time, many things happen.
First of all, we visited the crowdy Machu pichu and its quite wet surrounding. We also made some stops in the sacred valley, where we saw an area of salt extraction and some circular terrasses (look at the point on google eath files).
We finally came back in Cusco to take back equipments in our hotel and leave to puno on the side of the titicaca lake (3800m).
From there, we visited floating islands where, tribus of Uros and Aymaras live simply.

Then, it was time to leave Peru for Bolivia to enjoy the fiesta de la virgen de candelara at copacabanna (on the other side of the lake). It was 2 days of an incredible party with thousands dancers, music bands and of course beers.
That s why we decided to leave this noise place for the peacefull Sun island. We stayed there 2 days between mountain and beach under an heavy sun. This island seems to be in Greece.... Obviously it was not, the lake was freaking cold.
We left this piece of paradise for the busy town of la Paz, which looks like a pumpkins smashed allover a toilet basket. :)

  Arequipa, Peru
10 days in Peru
Hola todos

We are in Peru since 10 days and it s seems several months.
After a short night in Lima, we left for the pacific cost of Paracas near Pisco ( and it s special drink). We stayed there 3 days under heavy sun in a desert area.

Afterwhile we took an overnight bus for Arequipa at 2300m of altitude, which is a nice colonial town.
From there we moved to Cabanaconde, a weecked village up the colca canyon.
We treked 3 days in the canyon and throughout isolated settlements.

Now we are back in Arequipa, waiting for another overnight bus for Cusco and its vallee sacrado y machu pichu.

see ya soon
