After cycling quite some distance over the last days from Cusco to Puno, some days off were in order. Sometimes i wonder why i put in those big days, as i don't gain anything, as i just need more rest days to recover! That said, part of the reason that I rushed, was that Heidi was due to meet back up with me in Puno, and she arrived the day after I did – yes, i can beat a bus!
The days off went quite uneventfully, with walks around the town, which whilst not pretty, does have its own charm. In an effort to contribute to the tourist machine, we did a half day visit to the Uros Islands.
