Cusco to Bolivia

I made it to that super touristic place everyone goes to in Peru, Cusco. It’s a pretty cool city that actually has a clean center for all the foreigners to promenade around. After looking for ever for a Hostel that would be within my price range and with a garage for the bike, I found an Israeli one that was supposed to be a 2 star hotel. Well, it was kind of a dump, but who cares, the bike was safe and I was close to the city center. I think that I was the only non Israeli in there though.

Here’s the city from the top

Besides walking around and admiring the same buildings everyone else did, I found an electronic market where I got my other iPhone fixed. Changed the battery, the back cover, the bottom charging piece, the top headphone jack and power button, and a couple of other things for about 70$. All the parts were taken out from what I believe was probably a stolen iPhone that got locked. Either way, I had a working iPhone again. The guy tried to fix the usb port on my GPS as well, but didn’t succeed. I just bought a universal charger for it and charge the battery on it’s own.

After the work was done, I had no reason to spend more time in this tourist zoo so I left towards the Bolivian border. On the way, I found this cool little town that had an old school church.

More mountains…. I actually got lost in the mountains for a bit as I took the wrong way. Lost about 200km but had some amazing scenery.

Natural Hot springs… but a bit too hot to bath in.
