Businessman in the White Desert


So I edited this a while ago, but wasnt entirely happy with it so I never uploaded it, but I am exhausted so here it is. I took in at the salt flats in Bolivia.


A few days ago we got to Arequipa and went to this really nice hostel. Some other backpackers and us had a big barbeque where we all made and shared different food. Along with alcohol came the idea of hiking 56 km through a canyon without a guide. My brother insisted on the idea so... We left the next day, ended up getting off at the wrong bus stop and had to walk 12km to the starting point. I think every one got impaled by at least a few cacti. We climb down this steep mountain (it was 1.2 km straight down). One girl only brought sandals and ended up messing her feet up a bit. It was harder to take photos than I expected so I just got a few mediocre ones. We ended up not going the full route, and climbed up today. The walk sucked and my legs are about to die, but overall I had fun. I am back in Arequipa at the most shady and disgusting internet cafe ever. There are basically enclosed cubicles for each computer, and whenever I type a letter into the address bar, only porn links come up... I will wash my hands with bleach when I get back to my room.
