A short walk in the Andes

Just back from our trek through a tiny bit of the Andes in Peru on our way to Machu Picchu. It was 28 kilometres on the Lares Trail—a less travelled and less crowded path than the Inca Trail.

There is so much to tell, but I need sleep. Hope these three photos are enough to tempt you for the many instalments that will follow in the next few days.


My fellow trekkers just before starting out. From left: Matt, Donna-Leah, Miguel, Angie, Odon (our guide), Poor John, Sophia. About 15 minutes later it started to rain, then hail.

Heading towards a 4600-metre pass we need to cross.
