Southern Perú n 2010 - Part II

¡Hola! me había quedado con sólo la primera parte del recorrido por el sur peruano, la 1ra parte de un viaje que hice motivado por la visita de mi amiga Miri. Aquí continuamos con la travesía, y dejo algunos datos que creo pueden ser útiles. Hi! we left the action right after the 1st chapter of this trip i made some months ago, motivated by my friend Miri, now here i continue and give some data that can b useful. Enjoy!

Part II: Ilo - Cusco - Machu Picchu - Puno

The ride from Ilo to Cusco was interesting... you can check more about it on the previous link (or you can click here). The idea was to get to Cusco, then to Machu Picchu and then finish with Puno... and we did make it to Machu Picchu, as i already posted before. I have to say here that Puno is freaking cold... my friend Miri, who comes from Cedar City UT, USA was freezing there and it is common to have snow in her city while winter (temperature reaches -20°C in an average night)... we spent 3 nights in Puno and 2 in Cusco, but it would had been better to change that rate. El tramo Ilo-Cusco fue muy interesante... pare ver algo más de detalle pueden ir a este link.  La idea era ir a Cusco y Puno, pero inclusive pudimos ir a Machu Picchu, como ya publiqué anteriormente. Puno es muy frío, hasta Miri, que vive en Cedar City-USA y donde el invierno baja hasta -20°C, consideró que era muy frío. Pasamos 3 noches en Puno y 2 en Cusco.

i may say something about the total money i used... but i really don't want to get depressed, even when i think it turned out to be way cheaper than a typical and touristic trip. We couldn't spend more days travelling due to my job, but i could got at least 1, spending more days at Cusco would had been great (and kinda expensive), there is soooo much to see there!!! Comentaría algo sobre el costo total del viaje... pero de verdad no quiero deprimirme, aunque creo que salió más barato que un viaje turístico promedio. No pudimos viajar más días porque tenía que trabajar, aunque me hubiera gustado pasar al menos un día adicional en Cusco... ¡¡hay mucho que ver!!

Buses were not hard to schedule, but 'finding cheap places to eat': yes. With a complete backpacker behavior this could had been different :P anyway, it was a great trip full of anecdotes and interesting perceptions about the reality we peruvians live in. I can say... if we want to be a touristic country... we need a lot of education and work; nice places aren't enough for a complete and satisfactory experience. Los buses no fueron complicados de tomar (aunque me refiero a comprar pasaje, no a subirse), pero sí lo fue el encontrar sitios baratos para comer. Con un comportamiento más mochilero hubiera sido diferente... sin embargo el viaje estuvo lleno de percepciones interestantes sobre la realidad en que los peruanos vivimos (¡¡porque Perú no es sólo Lima!!). Puedo decir que: si queremos ser un país turístico, necesitamos mucha educación y trabajo... no basta con lugares simpáticos para visitar para ofrecer una experiencia completa y satisfactoria.

So... here some pics :D y bueno... aquí algunas fotos

Pachacutec Monument, Cusco

Cathedral, Cusco

Machu Picchu

Uros's Island in Titicaca Lake, Puno

F after getting to the top of the 'Kuntur Wasi' Viewing Point, Puno
(this was a even higher point than Puno itself)

4017 meters above the sea level = 13180 feet over the sea level
(i told ya it was high!!)

Titicaca Lake, Puno

al terminar el viaje retorné a Ilo, donde vivo ahora.
after those 2 routes i came back to Ilo, where i am living now.
¿qué sigue... la selva?
what comes next... jungle? :P
we'll see :)
