Leaving Cusco

my day was like that: packing the bike, leaving cusco in crazy latin american traffic that comes close to survival training, being molested by campesinos (rural dwellers) that were blocking main roads because they are worried that the government is privatising water, dodging road blocks, burning tyres, machete waving old men… then climbing from 2000m to 4000m, ending up in a cloud with 10m visibility and rain, getting wet and cold, now being in run down hotel that looks like it has been teleported from one of these east-block countries – totally soviet style… a military hospital would have more charm!

 Traveling is so much fun! So glad that I am still rolling together with the 3 Americans. Hopefully we will make it to the Pacific tomorrow. These guys will then head north back to the States and I will turn south, back to Santiago, Chile.
