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.
