In Search of the Andean Condor
Mary's Travels to Peru

Today, we headed straight to the Cruz del Condor, the most common lookout for spotting these magnificent birds. The condors had not yet arrived so we did a short hike around the area, admiring the depths of the canyon. Steve began to feel a bit ill from the altitude and eventually headed back to the bus where Carlos gave him oxygen and instructed him to lie down for a bit. The rest of us returned to the Cruz del Condor, but unfortunately the birds did not decide to make an appearance so we finally headed back to Arequipa.
