Our kayak guide - we paid him in Oreos (Laura Cahill)
We woke up to frosted tents, filled our bellies with instant coffee and quinoa pancakes, then started out on our hike to the Queua Sundur Valley. We headed up the valley through town passing children on their way to school. They practiced their English and giggled, while we tried out Spanish and they giggled. A little further we got caught up in Kuper Alto's morning rush hour. We broke from town and headed up in earnest, all the way up to 14,400 feet. After some amazing views of the Peruvian Andes, we headed down tour campsite at the ruins of Huchuy Qosqo. They were all purse for the night. We had a wonderful dinner and some wine, told some great stories.
