Weekly Photo Challenge : Companionable

Companionable is this week photo challenge. Companion, companion, companion … I immediately thought of my last trek around the Ausangate mountain, in Peru. Le thème de la semaine du challenge photo est Compagnie. Compagnie, compagnie, compagnie, j’ai tout de suite pensé au dernier trek que j’ai fait autour de l’Ausangate, au Pérou.

My friend Sonia was my main companion for the whole journey (7 days of beautiful hiking surrounded by glacier and lakes, more on that in an upcoming post). Mon amie Sonia fut ma compagne pour l’ensemble du trek (7 jours de rando magnifiques entourés de glaciers et de lacs d’altitude, plus de détails dans un post à venir).

Along the way, we met many other companions: 2 kids from a nearby village going like us to Upis hotsprings. They acted as our guide for a few hours. En chemin, nous avons rencontré d’autres compagnons: tout d’abord 2 enfants d’un des villages voisins se rendant comme nous aux bains d’Upis. Ils nous ont servi de guide pour quelques heures.

A friendlfy shepherd dog,  later renamed Bruno, that followed us for 2 days, until he met another group of trekkers. 3 austrians with an agency (the food was probably better for him) with whom he went climbing a mountain ! He came running at us at the last campsite ! Un chien de berger amical, renommé plus tard Bruno, qui nous a suivi pendant 2 jours, jusqu’à ce qu’ils rencontrent un groupe de 3 autrichiens en agence (la nourriture était probablement milleure et plus abondante pour lui), avec qui il est allé grimper une montagne ! Il est quand même venu en courant vers nous au dernier campement !!

And many more llamas and alpagas as brief companions along the way… Et les compagnons passagers de chemins, les llamas, alpagas …
