This Photo of the Week is a bittersweet one — it marks my third and final week with Zoe.

We spent it in style. After leaving Cusco, we hopped down to Lake Titicaca and spent a few days soaking up the peaceful atmosphere before a serious gear shift to festival mode for Puno Day. We kept up the chaos when we pushed on to a serious party hostel in Arequipa with a birthday celebration that stretched three days! It was a very sad goodbye, as I likely won’t see Zoe again until March and I’ve loved having her as a travel buddy.

Now I’m heading into the Colca Canyon with a group I met at the hostel, my final adventure before I wind back to Cusco to hunker down and get to work on some freelancing projects.

Onto this weeks’ photos!

    So nice to see these familiar scenes through a different eye! It’ll be interesting to hear how you like Cusco as a very temporary base.

      I’m going to be thrilled to stay put for a whole week after all this bouncing around, I’ll tell you that much! This super fast travel style definitely takes a toll šŸ™‚

    I love A and B…always such a big regret that I never made it to Lake Titicaca while in Peru (or anywhere in the south for that matter – guess it’s time to plan a trip!)

      Heck yes! Everyone does the south though — it’s pretty cool though that you saw parts of Peru most tourists never step foot in!

    Maybe it’s the crafter in me, but I love the textiles in the first picture!

      It’s funny, that trip brought back long-repressed memories of a weaving summer camp I went to when I was a kid. I don’t remember a thing, but I think I have a few textile example somewhere to prove I did it!

    Photo B looks amazing. I love those boats! I am surprised that they don’t sink actually.
