This podcast is second in a series of two podcasts I’ve made in Southern Peru. (Listen to part one here)

Podcast: South Peru - Lake Titicaca, Cusco & Machu Picchu

It begins in Colca Canyon, where I go Condor spotting before heading up to Puno (3,800m) on Lake Titicaca – the highest navigable lake in the world. At Lake Titicaca I visit the floating islands and Taquile island. Following this I get the bus to Cusco, ancient capital of the Inca empire, where I visit some of the Inca ruins around Cusco and within the Sacred Valley of the Incas – including Pisac and Ollantaytambo. I finish the podcast at Machu Picchu, perched precariously on top of Huayna Picchu and feeling highly emotional whilst looking down on the most famous of all ancient Incan ruins.

Video: Arequipa, Peru

This a just a 3 minute compilation of short video clips I made in and around Arequipa, Peru. It’s by no means a masterpiece, it’s simply intended to give you a quick overview of Arequipa.

This clip features: Miners’ protest march in Plaza de Armas, another clip from the main square, some panoramics of the city showing El Misti volcano, Arequipa market (including the Police warning my mother about pickpockets!), and the last couple of scenes are from the Santa Catalina convent.
