Hello from darkest Peru! We´ve had a great time in Cusco. We spent another week studying Spanish and staying with a lovely family. Now we`re on the Sacred Valley trail, visiting lots of Inca sites (too many ruins according to Julien!) The scenery here is absolutely breathtaking, as is the altitude... Went to a guinea pig restaurant today (photos to follow!). Hope the weather improves at home. Every email we get mentions the rain. If it makes you feel better it`...
I hope we turned the gas off!

Well we arrived safely in Peru at last. Visited Trujillo in the north, then got an overnight bus to Lima. We´re having a couple of days here before heading to Cusco. We were feeling very lazy yesterday after our overnight journey, so we did a 3 hour bus tour of Lima. Hopefully today we might manage a bit more. We´ll add the photos of Columbia and Ecuador when we get to Cusco. I know certain people are getting impatient!

We`ve finally got around to uploading our Central American photos, so we hope you enjoy looking at them. We`re heading to Peru tonight and will be spending most of the next couple of days travelling, but will write again once we`re settled. Hope the sun`s shining in Europe too. Bye for now. A&J xxx

The snorkeling here is superb. Crystal clear waters full of colourful fish ...
Well we didn't tell anyone in advance, as we didn't want our parents to worry, but we've just had the most amazing time in Colombia. We spent it all in Cartagena, as we hadn't planned to include Colombia in our trip, but we heard such good reports from other travellers we decided at the last minute to check it out. Cartagena is a beautiful, relaxed, romantic walled city with great restaurants and bars and good shopping if you've got the money (we haven't!). We th...
