Was a good decision to have one day to recover – I was feeling cold and tired so I stayed the whole day in bed, sleeping and relaxing. I was quite worried about the weather, as the forecast was saying that it will be cloudy and stormy.
The weather was a bit fresh, around 4°C, but pedaling kept me warm. With my right pocket full of coca leaves I was pushing forward, being at the same time overwhelmed by the majestic scenery around.
Everything looked like normal procedure, things were going smooth and I even met two Peruvians on bicycles on their way to Cusco. Had a nice chat with them, and when I wanted to continue I realized that I have a flat tire in the back. I fix it using one of my two spare tubes, but when I finally arrive in Marcapata I realize that the tire is flat again (!). I was very lucky to have a bicycle repair shop just next to the place I was sleeping, so I fixed both tubes before going to bed reassured.
