When crossing the Bolivia-Peru border by land, it was like rediscovering and entering this new country with Inca energies that still remain in the memory of the rocks and of everyone.

Highs & Lows
Macchu Picchu Walking.
At night it is very cold in Peru, and in Cusco at 9pm they cut off the water to save energy.
I entered Peru through the land border of Puno (Bolivia-Peru) a new world had in front of my eyes, there were some motorcycles with a coverage called Moto-Taxi that took you from one place to another and with different people and your luggage, and I took a bus at the bus station to Cusco. I spent most of my stay there, since it is a city with a high volume of tourists and job and volunteer offers do not take long to arrive. Make all the tours, Humantay lagoon, Macchu Picchu, entire tour of the city. Then I paid a visit to Lima for a few days, I was close to the beloved Pacific beach and with the finishing touch of 1 night in Mancora they made me feel enriched with how far I had come. Thanks Peru!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
To visit Peru one of the issues to take into account is the length of stay, with 60 days I would have loved to travel even more. Before visiting Peru acclimatize with the altitude.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Nothing can go wrong in Peru wanting to walk and make new friends.
How was the food?
I recommend the Cusco market. One of the most sought after for its variety and its artisan foods. MATCHA VERDE -Japanese Cafe- There is an incredible green tea and the green tea cake is the perfect combination. Jururuk - Korean Noodles - Exquisite warm ramen after a long day of walking. they have levels of spiciness and you can add additional ones such as rice, meat, cheese. They also have Soju drink.
What tips would you give a friend?
Bring a lot of enthusiasm to this trip, enjoy the smells and patient rhythm of Cusco. Everything is admirable and its sight brings a nobility to this nature. breathe wisdom.
Buy Pisco, create your own chocolate design, the llama keychains that are not missing as a good luck charm, and the typical coat that all llama sweatters have make you have an extra backpack or make a place for the souvenirs that you carry to this place.
If you are like me who does not carry a tent and a sleeping bag, do not be an impediment. In Cusco there are tent rental houses and mountain elements, all for you to have a desired trekking. you leave a sign of money and then when you return it, the money returns to you. this information is important
When we arrived in Cusco, we saw the promotion of an event that made us happy about this ARKANA festival trip, it is a rave that lasts 3/4 days and takes place in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. In Ollantaytambo I spent some spectacular days there and decided to rent a tent and mountain elements, I must clarify that because of the height at night it is very high so it feels cold.
Booking and Airbnb, if you want to do the Macchu Picchu walking you go up on a path to the town "Aguas Calientes" and then another day until you reach the gates of the sun. Place to contemplate and feel happy about the natural wealth. In the center of the city there are many offices dedicated to tourism that guide tourists in a friendly manner.
