No trip to Peru is complete without a visit to Machu Picchu, the magnificent, but once-forgotten, Inca city. But since it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, you can probably guess you won’t be alone when you visit the… Continue

As the Urubamba River thunders violently below, a majestic, serene, and almost haunting image emerges from the dense early morning mist. It is one of the most recognized and revered structures in the world – one of the 7 New Wonders of the World, in fact. Its unrelenting lure pulls thousands of… Continue

We headed to Cuzco driving south from Lima through rocky deserts before turning inland and up across the Andes Mountains. We stopped in Pisco for the night and had a Peruvian Pisco Sour, the national drink. Evidence of the devastating earthquake of August 2007 that occurred in Pisco is still visible. Cracked and crumbling bell tower of the church is a testament to an area, which is one of the most active seismic spots on earth. We sipped our Pisco Sours while watching the locals enjoy an… Continue

We drove into northern Lima in mid afternoon; chaos, confusion and traffic, worse than Cairo, greeted us. Yes, it is true driving in Lima is worse than driving in Cairo. Beaten up cars, trucks and buses compete for space and it seems the driver with the biggest bull bar wins. No one it seems uses indicators, indicators are for woosies, instead they hang their arms out the window and a flick of the wrist indicates they are about to change direction, it is anyone’s guess as to where, brakes are… Continue

Huamanquiquia, Sacsamarca and Hualla. These are the names of the three communities of the Pampas-Qaracha region of Ayacucho that I visited that week, along with EPAF staff and a delegation of Canadian professors from the University of Northern British Columbia.

When I stepped on Taquile Island
, I felt as if time had stopped. No, it was even more than that. It was as if time was suspended and this contributed to the magic of the island.
The walk leading to the town is beautiful and my eyes wandered along… Continue

Two months ago today we set foot on Peruvian soil after a pretty grueling 24-hour journey.
If any of you remember our original plan way, way back in the day, we had intended on spending only a month in Peru before heading south to Bolivia, with Chile being our final destination.
As you may have noticed, though, we're still here. We haven't even gone south of Lima (where all the traditional Gringo… Continue

I went to the jungle for week here in Peru. I spent a great week doing research on no contact tribes, and I was able to interview two families that left the no contact tribes, and now live with the normal tribes.
This means, they used to run around naked and sleep under trees, living nomadic lives, now they live in huts and wear cloths.

Deciding that she'd had enough of the family ski-ing holiday and with her daughter also away travelling, Joanne decided to strike out on her own and travel solo to Peru, planning to spend Christmas… Continue
