Peru: Cusco
04 Feb 2014

Back in Cusco for two nights before we head off to Bolivia!

The first night was mostly spent getting settled in to Pariwana and then a late night adventure trying to find decent food.

The next day we caught up on life debt stuff: doing laundry, uploading all of the photos to the blog, and eating tasty noms.

The day we left we sent almost 6kgs of stuff back home for a whopping $80, zoinks! We bought bus tickets on Cruz del Sur to Puno on the overnight bus that should arrive at about 4:30am.

Croissant + donut = cronut! We found them at a bakery called Delimonasterio across from Marcelo Batata. Pretty delish.
