Today was busy. We took a long bus ride from Arequipa to head to the Colca Canyon and stopped lots on the way. We saw: wild flamengos, wild alpacas and llamas. We held a baby alpaca for a photo! We stopped at the highest point of our tour which was 4910 metres above sea level and we both had throbbing headaches but they soon went when we got a bit lower again! We bought a big Peruvian style throw for 50 soles which is 13 pounds. We checked into our hotel Mama Yacchi which has amazing views and a pet llama in the garden! We went for a mini hike and the views were spectacular we were surrounded by Inca terraces. In the evening we went to some local hot springs which were 38-40C.
