Cusco, Peru

After a lazy day at Copacabana and a nice afternoon to the Isla del Sol

 we pushed hard to make it in one day to Cusco, which included a rather straight forward border crossing (nice surprise for a change), some obnoxious shoe polish boys in Puno (No means NO – even in spanish) and running late into the afternoon, so we arrived after sunset garnished with rain, crazy Peruan bus drivers, wild life on the road and another city full of madness:

 Again, my GPS saved the day – otherwise there would have been no way to make it to the hotel.

 Coming down with a bad cold, so might have to pull a rest day.

 By the way, did you know that they have coca leaves on the breakfast buffet table? they make tea out of it or you can chew it and it should help with the altitude sickness…
