    Suasi Island

    July 8, 2016 in Peru ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    What a lovely place to, almost, end our days in Peru! After breakfast, we hiked around the island for about an hour. It was sunny and windy today. We came across vicunas (one of the 4 camelids whose fur is highly prized here) and roaming alpacas. At the peak of the island were beautiful views. Too windy for a canoe ride today. Despite the water all around it is remarkably dry here due to the elevation.
    We came back to the hotel and played cards by the fire until lunch. We took a short walk and then I took a nap. Wow, did I sleep hard! Blaming it on the altitude! I made myself wake up for the best hot chocolate we've ever had.
    Played cards again until dinner and then packed our stuff to be ready to go home tomorrow night! 😊
    Overall the service was good but not excellent (as it could have been given that we were the only guests!)
