Crossing the boarder from Boliva was the easiest boarder crossing ever! I don`t ven think he looked at my photo!!! I finally arrived in cusco after a 14 hour bus journey!!! It shold have only taken me 6/7 hours but the locals decided to block the road again! This time the put stones and rocks in the middle of the road so nothing could get passes...The bus driver just said "we will be sleeping here for the night"!!! It amazes me how everyone just accepts what`s happening.....The following morning around 5.30am the police arrived and still nothing was done!! Most of the passengers got off the bus and started moving the rocks...only for the locals to throw them back....A fight broke out between two women!!

When i arrived in Cusco i realised that there was a transport (and anything else) stike....Not sure what they were protesting but the strike went on for a couple of days! Cusco was a great place...I stayed 2 weeks!!!! In this fantastic hostel called Loki....Truely the best..

Carnival was fun...it involved getting memebers of the opposite sex wet with water.....you couldnīt walk down the treat without waterbombs beign thrown or just bukets of water chucked at you! This went on for the whole time i was there....It was great fun...
