It had been an amazing trip and we'd achieved a lot in a short amount of time. Moments from the Inca Trail especially will no doubt keep coming back to my mind at the most unexpected of times. As well as seeing some amazing sights we met some wonderful people and gained a very small insight into the lives and history of the Peruvian people and their rich Inca past.

You know your holiday's drawing to a close when you see the list of new arrivals to replace you...

More palms near the beach - we'd driven along the coastal road a few times and it was clear from the many building sites that it is the focus of a lot of investment to take a far greater chunk of the coastal strip from being a low-end part of town to being somewhere much more desirable. Typified by the intended move of the prison to be replaced by higher end apartments.

So while it's not currently the oceanside paradise playground that these trees might suggest, it stands every chance of being a manmade version for the wealthy in the future...

Kennedy Park is famous for its cats, it was full of them, really full of them...
