This is just to let you know we have completed trip to Cotahuasi, and are now back in Arequipa. Apart from a couple of hiccups, it all went very well and we had a really great time. What a wonderful place!
I would like to put in a word for our driver/guide, Alberto. He was really excellent. His English is really fluent and he has a great knack for getting on with new people. But his driving is really formidable! Apart from driving for very long periods, he tackled some truly hairy driving challenges several times a day, without once losing his cool. So if you are in touch with your local agents in Peru, I’d be very glad if you’d let them know how much we appreciated him.
Incidentally, I think one driver/guide per two clients is much better than a driver plus a guide. Not just because of the cost – I think the group dynamics work much better that way. But of course you need the right person.
Anyway, thanks very much for all your work on our behalf- we’re really delighted.
