It's the last blog and its time to go home. Before we do let's goto Rio! It was an emotional last few days!
With 275 falls situated over 1.7 miles, across 2 countries with the highest drop of 82 metres, we had a lot to fit in in 2 days!
Argentina has the second highest rate of beef consumption in the world! However, on hearing that this is in decline we thought we would stay a bit longer and help the situation!
Salta was just an overnight stop for us on our way to Buenos Aries. As we bought a fridge magnet from here, we also had to do a blog!
The Uyuni salt flats were another big draw in coming to South America. It's not that we have some weird interest in salt, it's just a really unusual and picturesque place as you'll see from our photos!
La Paz, home to many things but mainly 'The Worlds Most Dangerous Road' aka 'Death Road'. We booked ourselves on a tour to cycle down it, obviously not telling them we were novices!
Copacabana Bolivia (not to be mistaken with Copacabana Brazil - it's a bit colder here!) is situated next to one of the worlds highest lakes, so we fancied a room with a view!
Machu Picchu would probably be the highlight of our South American trip...but after 4 days of intense trekking will we have had enough?!
We arrived in Cusco to start acclimatising to the altitude. So...no drinking, early nights, eating small portions but often! Yeah right! This was also the start of a 3 week holiday for Emmas sister Karen, which means Kris will have 3 weeks of getting picked on!
We donned our best trekking clothes, hat and whip and followed Indiana Jones path to Nazca, but not to find crystal skulls!
Huacachina, built for elite Peruvian families back in the day now its where 'gringos' hang out!
Lima, the capital of Peru can feel hard done by by its write up in the Lonely Planet but as you will see from the photos, its actually quite nice!
A few more days by the beach won't hurt!
It's time to hit the beach as we arrive at our first destination in Peru.
Cuenca was a quick last stop before the border. The center of the city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Trust site.
We headed back to Quito to see what else it had to offer, and as this is the Andes I guess it's not surprising that it involved some dizzy heights!
Here we are deep deep into the Amazon where 2 species unknown to animals try to blend into the forest...
Hola! Welcome to South America! We're British and we only speak one language! That hasn't been a problem until now!
Hooray for Hollywood!! We work out on muscle beach, get dizzy at Universal Studios and literally mingle with movie stars!
The Drive to Los Angeles would take us 600 miles down the 101 coastal road, spotting elephant seals, sampling the local vino and catching a movie - 50's style!
