    Update re El Hada in Cusco. This has now moved from Calle Arequipa, new address is 596 Qanchipata, San Blas. Coffee, at best average and at 12 soles is this the most expensive cappuccino in Peru !

    Thanks for the great book, it’s the only one of its kind available.

    We followed the Ollantaytambo to Lares treck from the guide, and wanted to send along some feedback. The book devoted very little time to descriving the trails from Ollantaytambo to Patacancha. We were unable to find the trail leaving Ollantaytambo and ended up bushwaking a fair amount. When we got to Pumamarka, we followed the imstructions to walk along the canale, but foumd nothing resembling a trail next to it. So we just followed the canale for an hour and wound up in a dangerous situation, on the side of a cliff with no safe way down. We had to straddle the canale at one point to get to a place where we could decend.

    We finally arrived at Patacancha, having had to walk along the highway for much of it, and after that the Bradt instructions worked better, although we also relied on instructions from the locals.

    Our suggestions are:
    1- Please make your hiking maps topographical! Without any sense of elevation, it was very difficult to budget time for legs of the journey, or to figure out just which mountain we were supposed to be on
    2- always include the cardinal direction the path is supposed to be taking, so a trecker can check her compass and determine if she is on the right path
    3- for places with no obvious path (or multiple), devote more text to describing the route


  3. A taste of Peru – in London

    There are now three Peruvian restaurants in London, so why not get a taste of the country before you visit? The decor sets the scene as well. I’ve only been to Lima (31 Rathbone Place W1T 1JH) which I thought was terrific. Great food, good service, nice atmosphere.

    John Forrest, who contributed to Trekking in Peru and is married to a Peruvian, recommends Ceviche in Soho and, under the same management, Tierra Peru (164 Essex Rd, N1). “A bit pricey especially, of course, compared to the prices for the same dishes in Peru”.

    I don’t think any of these places serve cuy, no doubt on account of English sensibilities. I did offer to bring my own guinea pigs…
