Last step before going to Peru, Vilcabamba was supposed to be a resting place... We choosed to stay in Madre Tierra, a hotel a little more expensive than the ones we had previously slept in, but this was to be worth the price...
And it was ! But, instead of rest, we woke up early every day and went to bed very late, playing guitar and singing around a woodfire next to the swiming-pool of the hotel...
The place was so nice, we had sun every day, we met very nice people and we simply couldn't get out of here !
It's true that it was completely different from Ecuador we travelled in for 2 months, but we enjoyed it also as a little vacation in the middle of our trip.

Derniere etape avant le Perou, Vilcabamba devait etre un lieu de repos. Nous avions choisi de rester a l'hotel Madre Tierra, legerement plus cher que nos precedents choix, mais qui semblait valoir le coup... et ca le valait ! Mais, au lieu de se reposer, on se levait tot, se couchait tard, a force de soirees guitare auu bord du feu, pres de la piscine... L'endroit etait charmant, le soleil present tous les jours, les gens des plus sympathiques... Bref, on n'a pas vu le temps passer !! Il est vrai que ce "luxe" etait en parfait decalage avec nos premiers mois, mais cela faisait l'effet de vacances au milieu de nos visites...
