Puno to Cuzco

17 01 2009


We rode the bus from Puno to Cuzco, going from Lake Titicaca and the drier altiplano around Puno over a pass and into the moist and fertile realm of Cuzco and the Inca heartland. We drove through scenic mountain valleys, with towering snow capped Andean peaks looming over vast open grasslands. As we got closer to Cuzco, we were in deep mountain valleys with herds of alpaca, sheep and cows being tended in the flat areas and steep hillsides by colorfully dressed locals. We stopped at the pass and Alexa even got to play with a baby sheep.
