    July 24, 2018 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Im Luxus-Doppeldecker-Linienbus mit Klimaanlage, 2 USB-Anschlüssen pro Sitz und Beinfreiheit für zwei geht es nach Cusco. 7 Stunden Fahrt, mit dem Komfort sehr angenehm.
    Entlang der Panamericana gibt es viele Eindrücke, nur die Kamera ist nicht schnell genug ^^
    Scheinbar willkürliche Paraden im Müll der Umgebung, eine Beerdigung, die wie eine Parade geführt wird, mit Wahlwerbung bemalte Ziegelwände, die zum Teil zerfallen, Schulkinder in ihren Uniformen und Alpakas im Pickup.
    Das alles vor einer unbeschreiblichen Kulisse.

    Drago D23 + 24 The blessing

    April 29, 2017 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    After a lovely breakfast we walked down the steep
    steps of the village to the docks and rode on top of the boat back to Copacanana. After a brief coffee with Fatima and saying goodbye to Leo we had a blessing to go to.

    Outside the basilica in Copacanana lies a lane for new cars to be blessed every friday. It was too good an oppertunity to be missed. On the pavement a cholita had a stall and went about beautyfing Mamasita for the blessing. She had flowers, ribbons and even a golden top hat. We couldn't find the priest but mother superior came out to bless the truck. After a prayer she dowsed Mamasita and us in holy water. We drank some wine giving the first sip to Pacchamama and then we set off fire crackers. Mamasita was officially blessed for safe travel.

    We crossed the border after Copacabana into Peru. Our 6th and final country in South America. We continued through tidier villages and ordered farms up into Puno. A stop on to Cusco there wasn't much going on apart from an amazing Peruvian-French fusion resteraunt called the Incadoor. If you're ever passing through its a must!

    Next day after a minor engine hiccup we set off to Cusco stopping at Racchi that's famous for Inca temple and grain storage. There we bumped into another Dragoman tour. It was surreal to see Mamasitas twin Amber.

    Late afternoon we arrived into Cusco city. Driving through the outskirts it was time to say goodbye to Mamasita. She'd carried us for 22 days of fun and was the extra member of the group. At the depo she'll be serviced and put into hibernation for a few months untill her next trip in August. Sleep well Sexy Mamma.

    Quickly changing at the hotel Cusco we went out for a meal with Darren the mechanic in Cusco and had mouthwatering peruvian food with outstanding passion fruit pisco sour. We continued onto a dive bar not far from our hotel and James and I won a game of pool against Ollie and Izzy! A bit tipsy we collpased into bed.
