Leaving Limatambo, there was three hours of uphill cycling, but towards the top I was rewarded with some great views of snow capped mountains – A great place to stop to cook up some noodles!
A lovely downhill section with great weather made the approach into Cusco a real pleasure.
Entering Cusco was like entering a different world. Busy, full of tourists, and businesses catering towards them. We headed towards Hospedeje Estrillito, a place well known on the cyclists circuit for its cheap (in Cusco) rooms, and patio area suitable for bike cleaning.
That wasn’t on the cards initially though – the evening was reserved for food and beer!
And so, for the next week, I plan to take some time out, see some sites and meet up with a friend who is arriving from England. I will also do my best to ignore the bike during this period!
