Peru - 2 Weeks




I wanted to pass through the country to pass from Bolivia to Chile and decided to take some time to relax after lots of recent hardcore travelling.


I spent a week in Cuzco, chilling and just basically absorbing culture. I visited a market in a near by town and enjoyed the easter celebrations.


From Cuzco I met a friend from Huancayo and spent a week visiting the Santa Catalina Monastery, some local vinyards where they make Pisco and also plenty of chilling.


From Arequipa I continued South to Tacna and then to Arica in Chile.
