Woke up feeling a bit rough so I took it easy at breakfast. By the time we got back up to our rooms things had regressed a bit but nothing half a pack of Imodium couldn't sort out!
Set out to see the pinnacle of the holiday - Alpaca World aka Llama Land. It was free entry and there were some alpacas and other camelids (get me eh?) but it was a bit disappointing. I'd read a blog saying we had to say hi to a little un called Colin but, despite calling his name out loudly, he ignored us. The gift shop was great if you wanted to spend £100 on a scarf.
After a wander, nature called, so I had to return to the hotel. The big cherry on the cake, by the way, with Peruvian toilets is the pipe work is really small so toilet paper has to go in a bin by the side of the loo. This is really quite special and needs no more description.
The last site we had to see was Juanita, the ice maidan. She was a human sacrifice to the mountain gods by the Incas about 500 years ago. She was buried in a shrine at the top of a volcano and froze solid. In around 1995 there was some earth movement and she slid part way down and was found. Now you can see her near perfectly preserved body in a museum that is kept frozen. It was a bit morbid but still an interesting experience.
For dinner we went to a specialist potato restaurant which was great called Hatunpa. You can choose either 3 or 7 types of potato that are sliced and the you choose the topping. Joe had Alpaca stew and I had a simple vegetarian salsa (still not ready to risk more that that). It might not sound much but it was simple, very tasty and a good price - around £3.50 a plate. For the first time since I was only 4 years old I drank camomile tea while the girls polished off a bottl of wine and joe had a beer.
