Guillermo with a burro during the trek into Alpamayo
Angel's son Guillermo also made the trek into base camp with us, I took this photo of him with a burro on the first day in (note the beautiful hand-made sweater). The trek into base camp took us two days, the second day Angel and Guillermo dumped our gear off and immediately turned around and made it all the way out.

We didn't plan the food very well, especially these first few days. We were expected to cook for everyone (six people), and although we bought one large pot in Huaraz this wasn't enough. The natives weren't too impressed by our glue pasta the first night and went fishing for some trout. We had these for breakfast, they were quite tasty but not very big.
