Yeah, it's a strange place, sitting underneath those overhanging, jungle draped mountains. The hot springs are quite the scene. Several years ago my brother-in-law and I met up with a very charismatic Peruvian who held court, with half the folks in the pool circled around him enjoy the English, Spanish and Portuguese banter. From the baths, the party moved on to a local nightclub, where we closed down the place. This guy ultimately convinced the staff to keep the place open until dawn so he could teach the last half-dozen of us how to do some pretty difficult Andean dance steps. That kind of stuff sure as heck doesn't happen where I live.
