Its Sunday and our first real day off. My day started off a little earlier than planned looking after Joe with his head down the toilet. No idea if it was food, altitude, altitude sickness tablet or any thing else but it only lasted a few hours so nothing serious.
Jane and I went to breakfast at 8.20 to find them clearing things up as everyone else at the hotel had left early to do other things. All was not lost as they sorted us out with everything we needed. We spent the morning relaxing, catching up on this blog with internet that was slower than the old dialup. Tilly cooked herself alive in the blistering UV's so we wee able to use her as a room heater when the sun went down later.
After lunch Jane and I went fora walk along the Colca river and ended up at Yanque village square and had romantic ice creams from the freezer that Noah originally used on his ark many millennia ago.
Late afternoon there was an interesting power cut - not an expression I thought I'd ever use! The power in about half our hotel and half the village dropped down from 240v to around 100v which meant that most of the low energy light bulbs tried to fire but couldn't and the room heaters didn't stand a hope. Luckily the power company sorted things out mid evening or it would have been a very cold night.
There was a scary bathroom moment in one of the rooms (I'm not allowed to say which one as the girls as embarrassed) where the toilet blocked and the second flush, instead of clearing the offending article, filled the toilet to the top and more, resulting in a very damp and unsavoury floor. Fortunately it was mid morning so house keeping were straight round to sort things out.
