Our leader, Eber, made the trip excellent! He was very helpful and informative, and also very relaxed.
On the second day, eber introduced us to some local potato farmers. We were able to stomp potatoes with them, and it was an authentic and unique experience. Eber even told us about Peru's multi-stage independence, which started in Lima and completed in the Andes 150 years later. We settled on the group name "el Borro" which means the donkey, and had a lot of fun joking among our group, and with the other groups who camped with us.
The cook and horse leader, modesto, also was a great worker. Very good food throughout, and our tents and belongings were always set up correctly.
