Quest group with Blanca, our Peruvian guide (kneeling centre), at Pachacamac on 18 October 2015. I thank everyone for bringing energy, enthusiasm and good humour to the trip. We had excellent sightings because everyone contributed by spotting wildlife. I thank Laurielle Penny and Justin Peter of Quest Nature Tours for inviting me to lead this trip to Peru.
