Today we took a local bus from Puno to Cusco- taking the best part of 6 hours!!!! The seats where not the most comfortable and at a few points none of us thought we would make it as the driver seemed to be having problems getting the bus in gear!!! The scenery was great though - lots of mountains and snow around. We arrived to our hotel which was a bit basic. But then we headed into the main square of Cusco which is like stepping back in time hundreds of years it is beautiful. We all headed to get some food as we had not had lunch!! We had to get back to the hotel for 6pm to meet our local guide for the Inca trail scary!!! Getting close now. OUr guide Roberto told us what to expect from the next 5 days and we got our duffel bags, sleeping bags, sleeping mats and walking sticks too. We then headed out to a nice restuarant for dinner. The food was lovely!
