Our Journey from Cuzco to Puno
We jumped up, packed, breakfasted and ready for our pick up at five past seven. Our minibus took us to meet our posh transport - The Inka Express - for our journey to Puno. The surprise was this was no ordinary bus with a comfort break, this was a tourist bus with scheduled stops at important places in Peruvian / Inca history. Our guide Daniel spoke very good English but did say "for example" like he wanted to wear it out.
We left the city, passed the airport, stopped to let one of the hostesses off to buy two pan, the big, round, flat, slightly sweet bread of the area. We all got to try a piece with a cup of coca tea, then out into the countryside. The vista changed from crowded city, to river bed, to scattered villages and on to mountainous valleys with much smaller villages. Daniel told us our first stop was to be thirty five kilometers or thirty five minutes at a small town called Andahuaylillas (Ander-why-lill-ass).
ALL IN ALL GLAD TO BE MOVING ON TO THE NEXT PART OF OUR AT-VENTURE
