|Hello from Cusco in Peru
Well, we arrived in Peru a couple of days ago and stayed in a town called Puno. Its not a particularly nice place! But the hotel was nice and had a good nights kip ! The morning after we arrived we took a boat trip to the floating reed islands which was cool. That afternoon we drove to Silastani ruins and had a wander round. The scenery reminded me of Scotland!! We camped pretty much at the ruins amongst the cows!! That night it absolutely poured down ! First time for us ! Some of the tents got drenched but luckily mine and Lucys was fine due to expert putting up !!We were all in bed by 930 !! Not a lot you can do when its raining at a bush camp!
Next morning we left for Cusco and arrived about 3ish. Its a very beautiful city, full of tourists like us and so loads of bars! Took full advantage of this last night and today we are all feeling rough. Oh well, its the last big night until we set off on the Inca Trail the day after tomorrow. Tomorrow we head off to look at some ruins and stay in a hostel overnight. Then its 4 days of HELL!!!! Apparantly the trail is tough but if you take it slowly its do-able. We'll see!!!
Adios for now
