Chivay is a town you stop when you go from Colca Canyon to Puno. It is so beautiful. It's a very small town, but amazingly beautiful. This is not as much as a sightseeing sput, it is more or less like a great town where you meet the locals. The people there are so down to earth and focused. They sleep very late and at 6 oclock they start working again. These people rely on support of tourists. The best you can do is get yourself involved with this people, they bring the best out of you. The town is situated in a very nice neigbourhood and the hotel we slept in was just out of the blue. There is no confrontation with the locals, they are just to nice for that. The way they live, is so different from the way I live and still I could relate myself in most of them. They are just amazingly nice people.
