We took the risk and did an organised tour to Yungay..our guide didn't speak English and no attempt to see if any of us spoke Spanish, it was only when we arrived late on the second time back to the bus (I blame Nic!) she asked where we were from and looked unimpressed when she found out we were English, well we were not in the mood to rush back when all she wants us to do is to be dragged around a religious site!!
Laguna de Llanganuco was very disappointed it was a beautiful lake but it was nothing special what pissed us off most it that we only got an hour and a half to walk round the lake and during that time we met so many other friendly people to talk to compared to the people on our tour who kept themselves to themselves, so we were late back of course much to her disgust!! It would have been nice to stay there and have lunch and just enjoy the scenery instead we were dragged to an overpriced tourist restaurantwhere we refused to eat and walked out to find a three course meal for 1 pound down the road compared to paying £5 for a salad!! We were then dragged round some religious mural I respect the whole idea of remembering people that had died in the earthquake and landslide, it was ironic as a church survived the earth wake and then a huge border then follow it and destroyed the church and bolder is still located on metres away from the remains of the church!!!
