Location: Peru

After having a breakfast that gave us the energy we needed we set off on our journey to the Andes. We took a 3-hour bus ride to Lares where we spent about an hour at the hot springs. Then we began our hiking trek through the Andes mountains until we reached Cuncani. We reached Cuncani in the late afternoon where we covered ourselves in many layers of clothing and enjoyed some hot tea. We spent about an hour playing games and hanging out while we waited for dinner. Before dinner, we burned an offering to mother earth. Then we finally had a delicious dinner and got some much-needed sleep in our cozy tents. setdate:2012-07-09
