El Cóndor Pasa

We listened to Simon & Garfunkel’s version of “El Cóndor Pasa” – originally a Peruvian folk song, which means “The Condor Goes By” – while we were climbing passes higher than 14,000 feet (or 4,000 meters) and visited cities like Cusco and Puno, right at Lake Titicaca. Tomorrow we’ll enter another part of the ancient Inca Empire – Bolivia.

    • Mobility (gas and cars) is way too expensive for most of the people down here, so there is almost no traffic on the highways. Within the city limits you can find many busses and taxis, but private owned vehicles are pretty rare.
