Another early day, getting picked up from our Hostel in Arequipa around 5:00 am. An hour later our doubledecker bus was ready for our trip to Cuszo, 18:00 pm approximately arrival, long trip.
We had a short stop to get some breakfast at some local shops. Thought we bought chicken empanadas, ended up being cheese. First time I ever saw someone heating up six empanadas in a plastic bag in a microwave.
We stopped after a few hours of driving at lake Comsur for a view. The lake is on 4,000 meters altitude, so you kinda feel that kicking in. Here we had a view over the lake, with mountains in the background. Was not the most amazing view, because afterwards we drove on we saw more impressive sights. We could also buy clothing made by locals. The route continued navigating us next to green hills filled with alpacas, mountains and lakes.
Around 14:20 pm, after more than 4 hours in the heat of the bus, we stopped for a buffet. It was 20 soles per person, did not taste at all. As in, one of the most horrible buffets we ever encountered. After that another 3 hours before we reached Cuszo.
When lunch was done we were suppose to drive three more hours and reach our hostel at 17:30 pm, that became 20:30 pm because of the worst traffic ever.
Got a quick pizza and an Inca Kola and then to bed. Tomorrow, Sacred Valley!
