My Peruvian Adventure- Andahuaylas and Pacucha


Andahuaylas is not the most charming town I ever went to. I was attacked by a pack of dogs (though not bitten) when I got there at 3 am? There are dogs all over the place in Peru and many are unpleasant. But the area around nearby Lake Pacucha is nice. You can have trout for lunch and stroll along the lakeside.

There are ruins at Sóndor, at the far end of the lake, which are not uninteresting and from where are excellent views.

 This one, above, is the one of the best from this trip: it's energetic, crisp, with interesting colour combinations and it describes the sensation of distance effectively. It has a bit of Gillies in it.
