Viva El Peru (Long live Peru)

The final days of our adventuare

semi-overcast 17 °C

So it is time to say goodbye to Peru our end our adventure for now

But before that here is a quick post of our final few days.
Once we left Machu Picchu we headed back on the 5am train to Cusco. Here we went SHOPPING for presents and did some final sightseeing, oh and some eating :)

The Cathedral at the plaza de armas


My artistic shot of the Plaza, see the little yellow taxi in the bottom, all the taxis are like this and we manged to fit 4 growen adults in it and our packs, oh yeah

Streets of Cusco

Beautiful old buildings and flowers surrounded the whole of the plaza in Cusco

Myself with a little golden Inca man :) pretty freaky at first i didnt know he was real cause it was so tiny

again a statue of the Incan king

Me with my new pure alpaca blanky, I am in LOVE with the colours and fabrics of this place.

Db playing with his new chess set. Pretty awesome the pieces have been made into the Spaniards and the Incans

So later that night as it was our last dinner together as a group we decided we needed to go somewhere nice to celebrate.
Db and myself with our flash as menus, this design was also painted on the back of every chair. it was perhaps the flashest resturant i have ever been too.

Awesome live music of the flute, traditional highland music of Peru

Live entertainment, with dances from all over Peru, this one reminded me of the wild things haha


Oh look who got picked out of the crowd to dance, surprise, surprise it is me. I always get picked to do these things and im always the one saying no.no.no


More dancers

Our groups and Jesus aunty.

Ok warning the following photos are not for the faint hearted

Db decided he wanted to try cuy (GUINEA PIG) i couldnt do a whole one it so i ordered alpaca instead and then once Db had started he pulled a piece of for me. i can tell you guinea pig is quite a strange taste.

Look at it, it still had its teeth!

Side view

Boys having a celebration drink, me being a fool :)

Beautiful people clothes in alpaca fabric

So it was time to say goodbye to Cusco and head back to Lima and it turns out Db is quite a cool guy haha. He booked us into the airport 4 star hotel!.

I tell you now after a month of cold showers, toilets with no toilet seats or toilet paper, some strange beds with plastic sheets at the bottom that made a funny noise when i rolled this place was heaven!

This toilet even had a phone by it so you could ring room service, NICE! haha

A huge bed! and it was soft and snuggly

Oh and i can't forget the bath oh i mean Jacuzzi in the room :)

Note: i dont useally where togs in the bath but for the point of this photo i thought it was a requirement haha

Haha Db had more bubbles cause i poured a bit to much in for him. The white bathroom also makes him look very black. He isn't actually that dark ok people.

Well from here i got treated to a manicure, pedicure and a facial at the spa that it situated in the hotel. as i have never really had any of this girly stuff this was awesome and i can tell you i am coming home as one nice smelling traveller.

So thanks again for reading and this will be our last blog as i am pretty sure you don't need to know what i get up to in Sydney which is pretty much watching home and away and being stuck in traffic. So with that I say bye bye to Peru and thanks all for your comments and i hope i get to see you all soon.

Viva El Peru, Long live Peru! This adventure has truely been amazing for the both of us and i know that i at least will be coming home a lot more apprecitive of what i have and the awesome country i call home, thats New Zealand by the way NOT Australia haha

Well thats it my friends
Love Db and Sherry
