Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson made unusual travel plans this holiday season – they’re down in Peru this week, staying in cheap hotels, visiting an orphanage, and bathing in local irrigation ditches.
Part of the trip was caught on video by a local TV show, which aired footage of the actors in their boxer shorts, taking a refreshing dip in a ditch, the Associated Press reports. They were also reportedly due to visit a local orphanage they support near Cuzco, the ancient Incan capital.
At one point in the video, a local man asks the pair if they plan to visit Machu Picchu, the famed Incan site and Peru’s greatest tourist attraction. Harrelson advises against giving the man their itinerary, but Wilson tells him they will indeed be there later in the week.
The actors and longtime friends reportedly dodged the cameras at Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport and have been staying in $50-a-night hotels.
