animals in woe on a way to Chinatown I encourage you to try out Leamas many many exciting street foods fall in sweets popcorns fresh ice cream – fresh fruit so this is limas chinatown this one the oldest in the world and the largest in the Latin America and it's for of Chinese shops but it's famous whereas Chinese food Chinese Chinatown that way let's go and take a look family in mid 19th century by the Chinese immigrant it was a site at the Central Market in the 1850s on Chinese immigrants started to cluster in their area by establishing business schools and temples it was a thriving commercial area until the destruction and looting in 1881 to 1882 by the invading Chilean military forces during the War of the Pacific today Chinatown has fully recovered with many restorations and renovation past five decades including the archway a gift from Taiwan in style in 1971 and over hopping down to streetcar cocoon pray for thirty thousand red blocks with name of the donors and benefactors so Omachi style and to eat the Freudian Chinese food and you will see their version one time and I warned you it's not the same as long we having us so how come about is when Chinese first arrived in Peru they don't have a lot of original ingredients of the years back in China so they have to improvise due to lack of ingredients Chinese immigrant will force to substitute with the local ingredients by 1920 the first Chinese Peruvian restaurant will open in lima and were given the name Chifa derived from cantonese sick fun meaning eat rice to describe the restaurant where this type of food is served I stay at the nearby lima house for the night it's only a short walking distance from both the Chinatown in the main square with a great public transit right across the street after two days in lima is time to explore other power Peru so next stop practice a little resort town famous was bollocks this islands marques poor man's Calexico is only a four-hour ride from Lima the best way to get there is by overnight sleepers bus which arrives at 6:00 in the morning just in time for the island tour pick up so I just got dropped off Oh in practice and geez uh I feel like I'm in a war zone right now look at this it's like no solid structure here I know it's uh let's just go in the hotel the cost of the bus is approximately $20 and another $2 taxi ride from practice bus tomorrow to a city center I opted to sell it in the Kokopelli hostels famous will be in the magnet for hot ladies alright alright enough with that they are famous for lively atmosphere and great party every night oh yeah free breakfast but go easy on the field if you think you can be seasick the tour operator will pick you up at 8:00 a.m. so don't be late the Consul two are between 15 to 20 dollars including the entrance fees but I'd like to thank our sponsor Pisco travel for offering us a complimentary seat on this trip the ballesta islands are group of small island compose larger rock formation covering the estimated error point 1/2 square kilometers on a way to isla you'll notice el colorado on the caracas peninsula a large scale geography may serve as a beacon to Mariners as a figures 595 feet tall and large not to be seen 12 miles away in the open sea these islands important sanctuary for 200 species of marine fellows like guano ghana bird the blue footed boobies and ten arrows other noble species include humble penguins and other marine mammals including largest sea lion companies in the world so we actually saw a lot of species of birds and sea lions in song but no penguins yet but where they keep bucking the rocks information is really nice it's very colorful hours spent in cruising around the islands arches and caves watching large herds on noisy sea lions brought on the rock I returned to the dark hour before the bus will take us the practice National Reserve including a tour is a museum showcasing many species of wildlife particulate birds which are largely concentrated at water's edge is the largest concentration of birds on earth the museum also showcases prehistoric site I'll practice cultures and other ancient civilizations established 1975 the reserve consists out practice Peninsula coastal area and Chapel desert extending to the south so if you look carefully over there demon Delancy is dominated by sandy deserts along with many of his beaches the Prada our ocean by papi rocks are scattered throughout the hills our practice Peninsula the final leg of the tour in coolest stoppable Cunha Beach for lunch but be warned it's pretty pricey the food costs about twice average this is a small fishing village dominated by the view of Pacific Ocean in the horizon so the fresh catches are always available every day there's not much to do I will say you don't need more than maybe they say two days here especially when the Sun comes down early along with many of his businesses except for the overpriced restaurant in the seaside however I did found a part filled with kids amazed by a garbage can and my video equipment next morning I took a four-hour ride in Nazca but the journey on a bus can be slower than bicycle at times as it has some mini sharp turns on the mountain cliff little nervous at times but you can always choose to relax a nap or I prefer to enjoy the view Hey I didn't come to Peru to sleep when that got bore I decide client adventure on the bus into the first-class cabin class is not much the only differences once again the Sun Goes Down early and fast I'm heading down right now to the the bus stop it's a short walk from the path of the honest and this hope will they get there before Sun Goes Down the city center is just few blocks away and if you're not exhausted just walk maybe get lost the Information Center is right across so important me that I should come here but as you can see only thank you see it's bunch of dogs I'm very confident straight because that's what everyone says ok this might be it I think but I have to still add so apparently actually I supposed to be here happy right across from that office ok so I finally cops this is all right bus I don't might take it it looks like this it's right outside the right outside not inside the station and there's an Inca I can't enter it Aiko and yes please learn some Spanish trust me yeah life here will be lot easier and tell the driver to stop the other Nazca lines I approximately thirty minutes away and cause of our dollar so the bus stop is here and this is where you get your tickets it's useful so yes feed in one three yeah go back up the lines actually make me have faith in extraterrestrials in who myself will grow up watching ET many believe that they are made by aliens but I'll have to leave the expert to debate our house may weigh its purpose however there is no doubt is visible high above as a reggae potato stretches more than 80 kilometers across the song Volvo about to go down so I'm gonna go and fly a drone over it and hopefully we get better view from there there's a full party here all right so what that being said let's go and have a better look from up above one hypothesis is that Nazca people create them to be seen by their gods in the sky all right incredibly good luck I only need to wait for like two minutes after getting off the bus I have an emergency I'm freaking hungry I'm prepared to eat anything as long as the cost less than three dollars and bingo I found my calling in fact it was eating here so I assume it it's good I'm not sure what is but I know this chicken feet eggs very good and also nothing if you can put mine over it mystery solved the name of Lupercalia Kalinda a proven star chicken suit with four eggs spaghetti and don't be surprised if it includes chicken feed all this for a dollar but I'm not done yet here's a round two of my dinner so this is a chicken or fry rice serve of potatoes i order arethe con pollo which translate into chicken rice while the favorite stables of Peruvian cuisine is original trace back to northern Peru and the variation who duck also a seasoned rice and some time with potatoes the total damage this is only 5 soles which is roughly to be like three dollars or so as you can tell small towns means nothing to do except for wandering around in the main score or the main square it's the centre of the town and there's one here in Nazca no exceptions the majority of population al Peru is Catholic so don't be surprised the second most famous lemma is not Scott Church or no as Santiago apostle Church go shortly after nineteen for the earthquake to honor divergent Gallup poll the patron saint of Nazca I woke up early for my local airport pickup so this is actually a very small airport and when you come here you know you can be checked in with your passport just like an ordinary airport acts something that you cannot avoid but at least there's no long line up and we can get going soon I'm pretty sure so we want to are high above journey to see the lines and have to think our friends are Alex Perez of giving us a flight on this amazing adventure 206 and we will be joined by two pilots so 30 minutes typical flight cost around ninety two hundred dollars but as usual Peru there's always room for bargaining the Nazca line will first spotted from the air in 1939 while pilot flew over desert the geocode fall into two categories about sailing having identified in the first category said to represent the natural objects such as animals birds and insects as well as flowers plants and trees [Applause] the second group consists outlines and basic shapes such as spirals triangles and rectangles after landing I have to find a way to thank my sponsor so for next 25 seconds please enjoy their infomercial Nazca City that's the city it's very famous for the Nazca line come on give me some energy take two please I'm joined with us I'm from the earth you will see many many lines I would like you to share this great experience with us Alice piranhas that's a little bit better since Nazca is located in a coastline I'm not leaving without tasting some fresh catch and one of the famous Peruvian coastal seafood dishes is Qi vey this is not big fish what kind of fish is but it's really refreshing this is the mystery raw fish is commonly trout curing citrus juice such as lemon or lime and spiced with chili peppers originally I'm a mochi a coastal civilization that began to flourish in northern Peru nearly 2,000 years ago because of its raw fish I asked you not to eat it from the street stalls since there is high risk of food poisoning without proper refrigeration if you gotta bust enroll early no worries being close to city centre means you find something to entertain yourself like meeting the future Olympians there's also local farmers and art market nearby selling everything from locally made our craftsmen jewelleries to the mysterious formula that will make you a better man at least better Lovering bed to olive oils to candles and shoes and you need a shiny shoes for luck they've got you covered too the bus ticket cost about $25 and be prepare once again for the slow ride through the breathtaking Valley also be prepared for a heart-wrenching shark cliff along the way and the Peruvian coast lines so finally we are kiba we are about half an hour late this is the coldest city I have ever been on this trip and it's no fun nice change but I'm just really freezing like that the taxi tow city salad cost about 250 to $3 so bargain and barking hard if you're using uber that causes $2 let's say a pickup point outside the station or else you would be waiting forever once again I choose to stay here the city center and thanks to my generous host hostel solar I have a roof over my head with a couple room our complimentary breakfast air kiba's proof second largest city and family in 1540 surrounded by three volcanoes the site was chosen for its proximity to the coast enabling seller to trade a product of pusu and the minds of lousy what Lima so I'm gonna start morning right here as a st. Amalia market is the oldest market in the city and so located only three blocks away from the main square the reason we're going so early it's only like 10 o'clock assault will because this market will just fill up in the afternoon so it's better do it now than later my favorite part is spices and most iPhone so my favorite is cinnamon you can just feel it and honestly amazing the breakfast on in this upper level it's fun for people watching and very popular with locals as table for peace officers and security guard having an inexpensive meal to start out their day don't forget to mingle with the locals you won't be much luck for strangers to offer you a drink and lots of free samples a Peruvian just offered me a drink right here so I guess I'm going to take it I don't know why it is but let's check out very nice very fresh that's really like you can just taste it the drink is chicha Morada a sweet Peruvian beverage made from peppercorn after all the food and drink let's visit somewhere familiar so this is a pop of the honest and main part of the town as you already know but on the pile Peru water fountain as well as over here for two important landmark the museums in the back and are very important cathedrals writing to the rate of Oz that score is surrounded by classic colonial architecture calmly found arequipa is well known for its glistening white building may found sailor a white volcanic rock which gives the city the nickname the white city facing the squares basilica cathedra Araki but the most important Catholic Church in the region free visa available in most evenings construction began August 15 1540 the same day Spanish lieutenant Garcia man your car broke down in the city of Arequipa sally the earth Correa 1583 reduced the Church of rebels and the rebellion began in 1590 but just before the construction was completed in 1600 a violent eruption of volcano together or earthquake in ring a seesaw part of the structure the present-day cathedra was completing 1656 and despite suffering many damage from multiple earthquake and fire the structural are to remain intact to today in Korea is telling especially at night located in southwest corner Plaza de Armas the English company Nia is a small baroque church and off-the-beaten-path attraction often in or by the visitors constructed between 1590 and 1698 the facade is intricately carved in a church erotic style and famous was a lapper car facade and interior chapel with Gingka motif the city is filled with monasteries and churches solemn very expensive missions fees I Santa Catalina so let's watch my favorite topic that makes me drool arequipa features out the most varieties and flavorful cuisines in the country best place experience is called Pezzini located west of the main square this is where the local eat a bargain she's probably not some sort of cake I think I don't know it is I think it's gonna be really good actually is not a cake it's a traditional Peruvian dish called Casa they found mash yellow and white potatoes makes with hot peppers lime juice and filler corns peas carrot mix with manly garnish eggs and olives the average meal costs only seven souls or 250 am proud enough I got better parking at only two dollars and don't forget the ice cream desserts it only costs about a quarter you can easily beat the taxis and buses on foot in the city center as the traffic's are pretty crazy but there's many options in getting around to the surrounding area taxi they are roughly about one so about 30 cents us or so this is how I got a fresh name printed de Febrero designed by well-known Frenchman a gas Eiffel who designed the Eiffel Tower this way you can get breathtaking view of the volcanoes overlooking the city being 1882 and use as a viaduct for train route to cusco at 488 meter long it's the longest in the world at the time within a walking distance from the main square there's many public viewpoint for you to enjoy at night and here is one of them if you ask me why you should end your night describe it we are a young a cooler site and from here you can get power city lots of place for you to sit and maybe even chat up a conversation of the locals and in front of us here's a nice little plaza with lots of seating as well so let's take a look but I suggest you accompany or visit with some tasty street food along the way don't you worry this everywhere for me I got chicken skewer it's amazing the best pie is only 1.3 soul which is about 50 cents while the most public street food is anticucho we'll meet on the stick now made from beef heart marinated in makes out garlic chili spices and vinegar hamburger fans we've got you covered this burger made from alpaca stuff with fried onions don't worry about losing weight you can wander off in many of the cities market Wow don't stay too too late because our tour bus is going to pick us up at 3 a.m. actually we're heading after coca Canyon the cause is fully Souls or about $12 after three hours I felt like my butt have been sitting on cement seat and finally able to get off and the tour includes a breakfast in a local hostel we got the tour girl all synced up bilingual speaking guys and upselling starts immediately blame TV is a first main tourist town in the valley and dominated by the church parish of Our Lady of the Assumption so our first stop we arrived at Mikey and this church the center of the town gone through of all restorations because on the ground Neath beneath us city is sinking due to the water here's a small market where the locals rely heavily on the tourists going to colca canyon now as much as I believe in supporting the local economy the policy of this network is not to take photos or well animals and exchange the tips the reason for that is while animal should be left in a while our next stop is to checkpoint we're all asked to pay a park entrance fee out 70 souls or 25 dollars not including our tour this is not what I expected ouch but life goes on now Coco Valley is a colorful and the value of pre-inca routes and towns founded in Spanish : times still inhabited by people or Kelowna and cabana cultures the local people maintain their ancestry traditions and continue to cultivate pre-inca stepped errors one of the highlights of e point condors cross city on top of the steepest side of the colca canyon right above us now if you have a power zoom lens bring it because this is where you can witness an andean condors with a second largest wingspan of all living flying birds gliding on the thermals the majestic bird can weigh up to 33 pounds and sadly the species has been listed by wool conservation Guinea as vulnerable don't forget to support the local business while you enjoying the views water fruit account dragon fruit Apiata is said to keep you forever young what is strong antioxidants vitamin C and fibers many studies even claim to improve your blood pressures and liver functions there's also star selling handmade souvenirs hats mittens and other artworks the tour frequently stop for small museums field and bathroom breaks but nothing is free in life at least when it comes to bathrooms and toilet in South America they always cost you two souls and not all of them have toilet paper so be prepared and bring your own yep do you remember a time we have girlfriend problems yeah that the headaches this is what you may experience due to the lower level oxygen at this high altitude my recommendations choose some coca leaf or Knick Knack cocaine leaf I'll explain more later but the help is on the way as we stop at the hot springs this is optional but not expensive I decided this will be my cure if I can safely get through the wobbly cable bridge so after crossing a rope bridge we actually on the hot springs is a great time for me to unwind and got my bathing suit ready and let's check it out they have multiple pools there's one pool that's actually in particular it's not a feeling because of that way from the Sun I'm especially excited about the benefit of submerging a naturally heated water by the surrounding volcanoes with that added mineral like sulfur or should I say rotten eggs but thank goodness I don't have a date tonight so we're going to go to lunch right now and I'm so exhausted my lack of oxygen is really killing me right now but I'm not depressed though don't get me wrong I am not depressed well it's depressing afterwards to learn that lunch is not including my tour especially how over price it is it costs almost the same as the tour so obviously if it's not clueless avoid our last stop is the highest viewpoint mayor Dorothy Lots on these this is the last footage I took be fine claps into a coma during my drive back to arequipa once I wake in from a coma it's time to get moving that air keep us new bus terminals accessible by bus from the city center but taxi only costs around 8 to 10 sold arequipa – Cusco is overnight bus is very popular and I recommend you pre book your reservation early on line to get the cheaper seat located at the rear oh yeah one other thing you have to pay a departure tax of three soles so make sure to get some change and come a bit earlier so finally I'm at Cusco and boy Oh horrible right so all the taxi shows you touched me tense all this but I said five eventually came to that agreement for southern so that means we say one US dollars most hostels are whole your bags while you visit Machu Picchu and I drop mines off at mail house run by one my friends from Argentina by the way if you constantly felt like you got hangover it's just a high altitude and here is the fakes now Cousteau has one of the higher elevation hearings Peru so if high altitudes not your thing I have a solution for you take those coca leaves you can chew it well put them into a tea the nickname is that's with the cocaine lead because that's drive from but don't worry you're not going to get high unless you're processing unlike Colombian mafia and now the fix is hit to Machu Picchu which has the lower elevation to help you probably climate eyes so what backpack and camera that is why I'm going that the more adventure way is hiking we made it here to the kid Obama station now it's time to find the bus that goes to Santa Maria the ten minutes taxi ride from the city center South Station cost about seven souls of two dollars in the local bus of Santa Maria cost around twenty Sol's or six dollars I recommend you leave early as this will be one of the many rights to come now there is a half so departure tax or Terminal fee so that lady is actually checking I want to make sure they pay for the terminal fee not long after I begin you'll be welcome to were a real life shopping channel no cable TV subscription required first round second round fresh fruits vegetables bread and other stuff honestly I don't like this is like a shopping chance like every few stops people come out and try to sell you stuff we on this bus be prepared to look out the window and on the upside you get to see some of the most beautiful Peruvian natural landscape so be brave so we reach the Santa Maria right here and the next thing we need to find is a cocktail or a taxi to take out to Santa Teresa for 40 you would leave the dry roll wait until the cars fall unless you're willing to pay for the empty seats I suggest you not wait if your arriving the afternoon how does it get dark early and it can be dangerous truck at night and don't be surprised if you need to make room for any human and car goes at the back don't be bad and you get a nice a proud Peruvian driver he even stopped to show you some scenic view point overlooking the canyon so our carts evil driver actually wanted to show up a very proud jewel I'll send the Teresa which is like to call my op hot spring as you can see over there these are all hot water coming out from the volcanoes sound Center Teresa we need to take another mini bus to hidroelΓ©ctrica after 15 minutes are waiting in the van I decided to pay the extra C on a smaller car and beyond the rush I forgot our tripod but there's no time to go back the new driver offer together for me and leave it at the pro whale office so we're gonna start walking from here and boy it does my travel buddy for the day I also strongly recommend you meet some new friends and para for the height to help each other by the way neat data from Germany who will be my cameraman and translator on this track and it will take us directly to what you teach you also remember this cheap and adventures waiting golf some danger therefore do it at your own risk so be warned and watch out for passing trains you also need to look out for gaps well uh so as you can see this is pure darkness darkness right now honestly so my advice everyone is please start your journey as early as early as early as you can so is seven eleven right now so we approximately walk three hours to get here so welcome everyone to alga cleanses we are at the foothill of Machu Picchu trying to get our tickets before the office closed down yes the first thing you should definitely do is get your Machu Picchu tickets is located right by the alka current is Plaza de Armas the score is now made by a foundation with a statue on 90 inca of cusco who transformed this region into Inca Empire many archaeologists believe that the famous Inca sia Machu Picchu was built as a stay for the match of kudi so this is where you get your tickets and remember the only exception souls and no credit cards if you're smart enough I strongly advise you to get one of these guys go to your University you get a free and guess what half price so I'm filming at Machu Picchu I'm saying at a hostel new day it's a really really comfortable hostel this is a small family-run budget house so that offers free practice Wi-Fi and variety types of rooms right down there is positive honest and a lot of ideas are actually great little restaurants are really well priced I am not kidding and everything can be bargain so from up there we will offer a phone meal for 25 Souls with drinks and stuff as we walk this way the price start to come down 20 Souls and then 15 years old fossils or free drinks and we got one enough actually got Indian guy gave us the food for tea and then we got this really good-looking food here so to start up our dinner we can have a fill avocado so with cheese on top in size Philippines excellent really fresh by the way and I can tell this is growth trouble wings and what's that I think she said it's beeping okay like four dollars I don't think I want complain it's pretty good value what do you think no like with the starter and out dish I will get dessert is really yeah desserts coming so stay tuned for those who complain about the prices here come to near the stadium and there's a food stall and you can get some pretty decent deal so this is pancake with honey on top so let's give our shot I'm Amelia small annoying it's I'm eating this way matcha is really good there's me on mistake pastries barbecue potatoes and the good ol American french fries and hot dogs it's also time to stock up on some natural sugar so tomorrow's hike once again remember to bargain there is apparently a hot spring up there but my personal review are a little mix alright right now is 4:30 and we just left our hotel room and we are going to do the manly thing is is hiking all the way up to Machu Picchu yes there is an easier way to get up the mountain so for those of you who don't want to walk up like us we are up for a challenge but you can always do the lazy way and pay extraordinary amount money Machu Picchu they don't open till like 5:00 in the morning so if you think about like leaving super early together hours and not do anything together again like good nail sleep be filled up with a nice breakfast and then come down this is truly a hour and half grueling hike not walking apart so make sure to bring lots of snacks and water so over there it says suddenly five more steps let's just hope that's true and doesn't have some prank we get that all right David what's the bad news I think we got pranked here because here it says with all and there it says 75 was a refund obviously holy shoot are you killing me so finally we are here and here's the line this is a hell of popular attraction for sure by the way our crime is not over yet here's to mountains we chicken climb why not features and Machu Picchu Montana bolt up our hour to two hours long when a picture is popular and tickets are sold out wanting events so we offer the second options of it and what we're going to do we're going to climb up y'all know much teaching hell yeah the mountain next to Machu Picchu so be a man and drink a protein 22 minutes welcome to why not Picchu the peak of it JEP joking oh so right now I'm soaking wet because his rain it's raining really bad David Luiz is hiding from the rain and asked me to keep going because I have my varsity suits on and be sure to listen to what the sign said like this one and guys please no hiking boots from Walmart alright so one thing I do want to emphasize to everyone that safety comes first if you need to slow down slow down because by altitude you might end up getting hypoxia means best air and up messin along with a brain second thing is that you can see this is really narrows food slate I don't want any of my viewers come here my body bag I believe this is one my final step up so I think so we made it here two hours it's just two minutes the ring really stopped us down but we made it the whole 3061 meters and I can do it you can do it so this is not my first expedition here in Machu Picchu that's been my second time laughs I might beat you and so those of you wonder how that looks like here is can you call me a taxi by the end I'm so exhausted and there's only one question in my mind can you call so I'm on the way back down right now and I asked I want to be very careful because after a ring like this it can be very slippery another thing is there's no problem my camera it's also very foggy so make sure you watch your steps basically on the way down when the rain stops and the weather clears up you actually get lots of viewing sites like this so just make sure you take some time to really enjoy it and seriously most likely you not in come here twice the Machu Picchu is elevations 2530 meters and building the height of the Incas in their classical style will polish dry stone wall most archaeologists believe that it was built as a stay for Inca Emperor but is often mistaken as a loss to the Incas so I'm standing right in front of a magnificent machu picchu it was Bell around 1450 and was abandoned about hundred years later now its purpose is still debatable as many theories all those centuries the surrounding jungle overgrew the site and few outside like me Tierra I know of its existence in 1911 american historian explorer and lecture from yale university parenting hal char with the region looking for love Oh inca capital and was led to machu picchu by a local farmer Bingham prot machu picchu to international attention and organize another expedition 1912 to undertake a major clearing and excavation it was declared peruvian historical sanctuary in 1981 and a unesco world heritage site in 1983 and voted as one of the new seven wonders of the world the site is roughly divided into a urban sector and aquaculture sector and the inter upper town and lower town the temporary upper town and the warehouse in the lower town even though Machu Picchu Sony located 80 kilometers away from the Inca capital Cusco Spaniards never found this place and that's why it's still preserved to today so all the significance of this site is is craftsmanship those those are really large we still have many theories on how they got here and how we craft the stones what a tool they have back in 1450 there's many theories but none of them are concrete like these stones it's also nice to meet some new friends or new type of friends and this is we can get close and personal with llamas the national animal of Peru look how cute he is wait where are you going are we supposed to be friends oh yeah okay maybe not time to go back to tinder then maybe not but try again remember being a responsive visitor means we leave here with amazing experience memories and photos to share but not take away any artifacts regardless how small they are after conquering Machu Picchu it was time to decide how to get back to Santa Teresa I visit prove our office here to see if they can check if my tripod is indeed in their office in Santa Teresa with a positive answer I was on cloud nine and bought the tourist priced ticket for the next scheduled training in the morning to hidroelΓ©ctrica so unlike where the tour's going board the train up fancy a train station there is no train station here so basically they bought right by the tracks while waiting for the local train to show up and hopefully will get us there soon our train is coming and here the price is 31 US dollars instead a 1 US dollar for the locos there's absolutely no way I'm going to hide back what broken boot or the staff are Parral direct me to the end of the track my assumption is I will not be able to sit with the locals which I hope to do oh dear I'm getting a fancier version of the Train on my first expedition I took a round trip on inca rail that's pretty much of a choice Wow this time there's not much of a choice I have to go back to Santa Teresa to retrieve my video equipments and start to take a train from here Machu Picchu to hydroelectric and basically from there take a share taxi to the cemetery son I wish I have able to travel on local cars they cost about seventy-five cents versus thirty one dollars the perio for foreigners who pay the difference you know and you get leather seats lot cleaner free drink I guess now if you want comparison to Inca rail here's a video I shot on my first expedition boys let's go to that's something from the cockpit the bus Rykov specials or a dollar fifty and only takes about 30 minutes in Santa Teresa since approve office opens up in the colectivo drivers offer to take me directly to the hot spring so I hope I'll be impressed by this one so this is central to Asus famous famous hot spring this one it's really really hot and that's what we warm up by the volcanoes up in the mountains first thing you need to do when you're out here in the hot stream is get yourself a shower the reason we have rocks inside here is because they keep it warm and also so they cannot filter the water and also no bottle water necessary honestly I think maybe everything happened for a reason I won't have fob are coming to send a teresa coming back here if it wasn't the fact i need to pick up my tripod i recommend you actually do this after machu picchu afterwards because your feet it's gonna be so store but right now you can see slowly be covering so this is a motorcycle and they probably low parish in the back here assume does first-class seats right here to get lots of small bills because our driver does not have enough for only a 15 so as you can see santa teresa that's are a very small small small city it's like a few blocks that way if you block that way you box that way and that's it there's really not much to do in this quiet small town unless you're coca-cola driver however I did manage to find arguably the world most dangerous hostile haha so apparently proved real kind of trick me actually the tripod is not in their office and I was a thirty one I was totally heartbroken and angry however within half-an-hour that word spread the National Geographic Explorer is showcasing the town and lost the tripod literally half of the town was looking for that taxi driver uh-huh after calling the driver multiple times with no answer while the locals offered to take me to his house after reuniting on my tripod I returned to town and the proud locals was waiting to show me some excitement and dispute about to claim that there's nothing to do they insist I try out ziplining while the famous after losing town and big thanks to inca flyers I'm ready to get my dose of excitement I just can't say no when there's lots of hot babes around after 15 minutes on instruction I'm ready to conquer Santa Teresa zip line it's going to be the longest and the highest in South America five lines above the jungle canopy where you can fly through up to 90 commerce hour oh yeah thank you I was nervous but knowing there's the beautiful ladies around I met up and rest is history so basically right now we are coming out second line the first one was actually not that scary longer got some technical difficulties I don't think it's a glider to offer you a camera and zipline for that I experienced my first rescue and another rescue oh my god I'm so sorry you had to do that I did have better luck the fourth time I already got rescue embarassingly twice in the last four times and I think I should be going solo bigger and tie me up with him and we can go down as a Superman well I can play with my camera and you get to enjoy the beautiful view brigands friggin Iraq pod UN it's amazing you should try it what's the name of this company the flyer Inc a flyer after my excitement the Sun Goes Down it's time to pay my farewell to this lovely town and on my way to Santa Maria for the ride to Cusco with a colectivo mr. usual wave and fingers crossed it's gonna be nice and fast so we are finally on the road and I'm heading off to Santa Maria to catch a colectivo a bus to Cusco don't be surprised if something happens like this treated as part of the journey and enjoy the experience I think the driver is driving really slow right now to pick up more passengers because he's coming out the names of the Kia Bamba and Santa Maria apparently we have not departure yet because missing one people finally on our way I'm so excited man that was a scary rifle Santa Teresa hell right now is it's not enough people inside the minivan all right the good news is one extra lady show up so we got three more to go I'm really pissed off after waiting and waiting over two hours the unofficial bus owners told everyone except for me and my new friend Elizabeth that the bus is canceled due to lack of passengers we were only told after asking again and again and only after all other passenger have left okay so what happened is but it's also it's a big ticket and they canceled the bus on the last minute and we end up trying to get buses other buses to Cuzco and there's no other buses and so what happened right now is this bus company are doing us a favor by letting us down here so once again if you have a choice go with a regular scheduled bus the first our outstanding is not that bad after all you can catch up on your shopping by the way they don't accept Visa Mastercard or American Express which acts as a cash only please or be a witness to an aquatic drug ray on the bus some girls we have breaking news it's a coca plant on this bus and it is illegal and you are looking at live search right now special coverage continues by divine intervention we it was pious eat and oh and perfect is dark right now so what happened the dark stays in our dark after a long and difficult right at 4 a.m. we find that right is not much option except for taxing Elizabeth back to her hotel room for some intense huh cab okay okay that didn't happen I checked into my hostel and feel so bad waking up the staff our hostel Atlantis at 5:00 a.m. it's a nice hustle that offers double twin and family rooms and this is why I wake up for the next three days the breakfast is including your space how after feeling up I start my day by heading to the bus terminal for our long colectivo right to pee sack so this is actually one or two stations that goes to pacing future waiting all the seats are falling could be five minutes could be few hours Pisa is a village in the sake of value a population of 10,000 is most well known for his large market every Sunday Tuesday and Thursdays the center squares ticket a few minutes walk from the bus station to here the market is basically is main feature a large section of a market is dedicated to tourist oriented souvenir stalls where you can find wave rings jewelleries Poncho's hats anding instruments chromatics alpaca products and a whole range of other gifts and souvenirs to take home with you the handcraft markets open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is a good place to pick up some gift all in one place however if you want more authentic and colorful experience try and plan out sure to visit the market on Sundays on the local culture community set up shop on the Main Square to sell their produce and stock up on the supplies for a week dressed in their colorful clothing they sit cross-legged in their we're layout giving the market authentic feel there's children on the street that taking follow what tourists since outgoing to school their short term financial gain over the long term future of those children so now they use my start power to tell you to once again do not take photos of children after exploring the market I went off the beaten path after getting away from the tourist areas and just see how the locals live so I guess this is the real Peru get to see those little villages and both men and women and children cultivating their crops I heard some music from the nearby cemetery and decided to check it out it was actually end of a funeral but in a happier tone rather morning the locals are celebrating the life of the disease by this point I was hungry and by the app of God there's advertisement for empanadas everywhere so my food cravings kicks in and given to my temptations what that satisfy stomach is time to hit home so tonight I like to be the adventurous after the bus ride back here right across on the station is brunch on local restaurants and there's no foreigners at all as all locals and the reason is all foreigners take those expensive foreign tourists tour's buses I total bus I don't understand Spanish just cooked for me whatever you have the main course fried chickens server fried rice and potatoes other dishes also available including llama stood on rice all right now comes the dessert I don't know way it is in this check out it's a pair putting I think that's the best dollar 50 I never spend on a meal the experience of eating with locals free while the newly discovered traction is Vinny kun coordinating Greenville Mountain it's a quite are off the beaten path as very few tours know of his existence as well most date or you need to bargain for the price typically the concerts between 60 to 80 soles and the hotel pickup is approximately 3:30 in the morning so it's really cold bring some warm clothing sunscreen and you definitely need a good hiking boots full of client but the good news is breakfast is included so I think that you're giving us some proteins for the day so I think we're ready to go then and one last look of our beautiful surroundings finally we reach the commedia hi Tessa soon though and here is why I start my height towards the rainbow mountain itself how Mario breath even though it's uh we haven't barely get started yet one of our missions is to support local economy and there's many ways to make it life easier and do that I think I hear first you can rent one of these for only five Celeste that will make it easier for you to walk alright if you like horse it's not much but price subject to change as usual equation and please don't forget to bring some cocaine leave I mean coca leaves to chew as an altitude in this region is higher than cuzco and this is a three-hour hike by foot each way well it's really cool that i've got lots of new friends even though they don't speak English and maybe that's the problem I can't tell them to stop okay so I'm gonna try saying it Spanish where are the tick control office but there's no one here to go okay so guess it's free today not so fast if there's money to be collected there's always someone there but it's only ten souls not bad another reminder you can always bargain so finally I agree I do fully soulless I guess is my ride yeah the suffering is over it's all right people heading down it's not easy doing this it's a lot of hard work so as you can see the horse has struck you off there but you still need to hike all the way up this way so it's not another 15 minutes or so but up being said let's not waste time there's something on there death experience right now finally I made it to the top so I thought it was truly breathtaking I'm so proud and felt like I'm on cloud nine until my new gorgeous for Hannah's ball my mommy I am so this is the highest point what with my pride and manful underline the only option is to continue right but safety comes first be extremely careful here as it is extremely muddy from the melting snow I'm the king of the world oh yeah you probably gonna be here once sown its peace city again and we take the shop on another angle that's my celebration people the peak altitude 50-100 meters and you are able to see one of the most holy mountain in Peru the acetate mountain and surrounding what other mountains consisting our layers of seven colors now that is what you call amazing – oh I have to be in it right that's what you call selfie look who we have here by the way I should give her we need more love than anything especially she's going to be an amazing doctor in the future on the way down but a familiar chore bargaining for ride there's one thing I do want to emphasize before you ride any horse check to see if it's being mistreated I will not ride a horse that shows a sign of abuse this lady right here she is going to give me a ride back well 30 soulless one adventure of riding a horse is that allow me to truly taking I enjoy the scenery until the pain in the butt eventually emerges from all the bumps along the way but hey it's all part of the experience all right now I'm actually on my back of a horse and I'll show you this is what the view is beautiful see gorgeous I had to get off a horse here because it's a little bit too much of a slope so once we get down I get back to the horse our next stop will be the buffet lunch and yes is included this time it's really good seriously so to begin off I think the apology apologies become with us so you want to see how their local Buffy look like mmm my lunch after coming back home I crash like a Tomahawk missile into bed so for the next 25 seconds here's few word for tour sponsor hi I am Ruben I'm the owner of salsa bench Pro Tools one of the best travel agency in Peru we offer the daily tours to the rainbow mountain city tour sacra Bali I classic – to machu picchu an inca trail we also offer extended trips ok times up for the info on our shows but you can find a contact on the screen I stay at the dragonfly hostel for the final night closer to the city centre they offer both dorms and private rooms and as usual breakfast is included with a great atmosphere it's time to explore myself Eastern facing Cusco Phil allow say in Peru locating the eastern end the size the oldest continuous inhabited city in the Americas in the historic capital Inca Empire from the 13 until the 16th century Spanish conquest the Constitution approved Disney as the historic capital of Peru in 1983 Cusco was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO I started off on the plaza arm is the heart of Cusco from the time of the Inca Empire the cathedral on the northeastern side of Plaza de Armas is a main attraction and you're able to find both the locals and tourists relaxing on his step on one side of the cathedral is a church out Jesus Maria and other side is al train for the southeastern side of the main square is dominated by the church are la compaΓ±Γ­a which is easily mistaken for a cathedral because I was ordained facade button let's get high I mean get a little higher I'm little addicted to taking panoramic photos and there's no better plan than visiting the Inca Lisa saying first of all for those of you who don't want to hike up all the way to the white Christ you can just play up I got my cue up on the main square which I'm going to is actually only takes about ten minutes I still get a knife for an expiry of the city it's a short walk away in during the Inca times this arrows are high cuzco the church was built during the early days of the conquest for the indian chief chris Rapala the laurel coke impala to show their devotion to christianity leaving out a pedro i bump into another attraction the sassy women or women welcome a three thousand hectare al-khawaja complex in la unesco site to take our little pricey so i decide to get a view from above with my lovely drone Winston's essex first row by the cow culture around 1100 the constructions plan executed by the Andean man the Inca called the house'll son the joist and wala construct out huge stones the worker carefully cut the boulder to fit them together without molder it serve as important military contacts for maintaining control of the cusco and today is used as a site with proven survey antequera me the annual income festival of the winter solstice in the new year right across is another row leading to puka met with a rare hell the home to the statue out crystal Blanco or the white Christ so this is actually the perfect place to evening a panoramic view of cusco and as you can see right there is promise there's no better way to spend your leftover food and supplies point the local economy at the mercantilism Petzl it's only few blocks away from our Santa Clara at Plaza San Francisco the Archos built establish short-lived Federation of Bolivia in 1835 the son petulance market is a huge food market open 7 days a week the building itself it's one block long and three blocks wide the large exterior selling host many activities and indigenous women and children sell their food and hers they they are on the blankets so the last place I love is a game Peru is petrol smart kids and I'm sorry the exchange of Seoul $50 the rate is just terrible the vendors are packing to every bits of space inside my first question a mood to discover the typical dish of the valley a simple meal out choc chip a fried pork and chicken soup this is where you can find all the locals at lunchtime but beware the service is basic price are low and we cannot guarantee you won't leave with a nasty stomach upset so anyone of planets you see a market like this to bargain and bargain hard this is the part of a local experience I'm very serious about able to find anything in this market including the natural performance enhancing things with a great potential to improve your love life cusco has a well-developed bus system and only cosmo 1/2 to seoul to get around including the airport it's about half an hour by bus and tenant's by taxi since i'm late i up for the taxi option which costs about five to eight souls they are also frequent bus leaving for puno for Lake Titicaca and copper Cabana in Bolivia and this is how I ended my incredible journey in the magnificent country of Peru I came to prove to see his famous tourist attractions but ending up discovering is spectacular nature feeling the impressive achievement of Incas in its transit culture I have been touched by the amazing mix of people with amazing past all living harmony Peru is truly a magnificent country with proud people out weights all want to discover what it's open hospitality and most importantly the spirit and soul of the nation

I like the way you have done this. Instead of heading straight to Cuzco and dealing with jetlag and altitude sickness. You've done it the other round – Pisca, Nazca, Arequipa etc and ending up in Cuzco

Jorge Takeshita · May 14, 2019 at 1:11 pm

so you saw 4 world heritage sites (Lima, Nasca, Arequipa, Cusco), One wonder of the world (Machu Picchu), One of the deepest Canyons on the planet (Colca), one of the enigmas of archaeology (Nasca Lines), the biggest megalithic mystery on the planet (Sacsayhuaman) and enjoyed one of the food destinations in the world (Lima) for so little money?
Lucky you!
