Puno to Cuzco

I took the Inka Express bus from Puno to Cuzco on Sunday. This makes four stops at sights and one for a good buffet lunch. It was a fascinating trip. I kind of wish I had taken the train but I’ll save that to do with Graham. Besides it would have been five times the price in first class and not very relaxing (constant vigilance over one’s belongings) in ordinary class.

Highlights were the Inca ruins at Raqchi – the only known ones to combine stone and adobe construction – and the Andean Sistine chapel at Andahuaylillas. Crossing the altiplano was very atmospheric and quite emotional, I couldn’t quite believe I was there!

Pictures are now in my gallery.

My hotel in Cuzco is very nice and has a lovely entrance way.
