Colca Canyon is a beautiful place surrounded by mountains. I made friends with a grumpy alpaca called Manchas (Spots in Spanish), who I had a very pleasant conversation with despite his attempts to spit wads of grass at any passing human. The steep sides of the canyon are perfect for Condors to nest in. These huge, very graceful birds are rare and we were really lucky to see one circling around us. It was an exciting and impressive sight!
