Cusco, Peru

rain 16 °C

It turned out our night bus wasn't as comfy as our last which was a shame. It was a 10hour journey from arequipa to Cusco and I felt like I slept for an hour! They did have a good movie on that was in English. That was good! Will slept better I think. So now we are in cusco and were planning on doing the jungle Inca trek today but have decided to leave it for a couple of days. Mainly because arsenal are playing on Wednesday but also because we're enjoying chilling out and have decided we've got that much time in Peru we don't have to rush anything.

It's really pretty here, a little town with lots of markets surrounded by hills. We have done lots of shopping In the little markets . Will buying sunglasses and a northface backpack for 40 soles. Haha the bag looks surprisingly real! I've bought a jumper made from either el pacha wool or llama wool or something. Really soft and light I love it! will with his new 'raybans'

So we're going to go on the Inca jungle trek on Thursday then we've decided we will head to lima to see if my cheque is ready to be picked up. If not then we're going to go to iquitos and mancora in the north of Peru and if it is ready then we will head to La Paz in Bolivia. So we're happy we have a plan now!

Other than the shopping we haven't done an awful lot. Played lots of card games and there is a free salsa lesson in our hostel tonight which I'm trying to talk will into doing with ,me but at the moment he's not very keen. The weather hasn't been great it's pouring with rain right now so it does get a little boring sometimes but apparently the rainy season ends this month.
