Day 14: Cusco to Urcos (01.04, 51km)

After having breakfast with my host I set off to Urcos. The route was mainly going down and the day went by quick. On the way I stopped in Andahuaylillas to look at the church there, a fine example of the so-called Baroc Andino (and also known as the Sistine Chapel of America).

I arrived in Urcos to find a rainy Plaza de Armas and a noisy hostel. Somehow the descent from Cusco was cold and the traffic was heavy and full of exhaust fumes, so when I arrived I was feeling a bit ill, went straight to bed, and woke up for dinner just to go to bed again shortly.

    Now we know that you only have about 4600 km ahead of you…at least the Andes are history for this tour and the steamy low lands are welcoming you…Continuous strength for the next stages.

    Shoudn’t you have written instead of
    “After having breakfast with my host I set off to CUSCO”…

    “After having breakfast with my host I set off to URCOS” ?

    That would make sense to me.
    Buena suerte, querido sobrino!
