Traveler's Feedback:  

Puno was exceptional.  The guide was an exceptional wealth of information and clear.  Silvia was an Aymaran healer, and learned from her mother and grandmother. She grew up in village just beyond Amaru Muru. Her ceremony was a version of despacho .  It was a very powerful experience at the Aramu Muru portal. I later meditated  in the labyrinth all afternoon, and then walked up to the temple of fertility.  On the boat tour which was a special experience there was a large group from many countries all over the world.   I want to go back to Amantani and learn to cook the way Mama Fredela cooks. The dance was very fun, especially because it was a group oriented experience. It was so beautiful at Taypikala Lago I would love to go back.   Munay,          Ellen from Colorado
