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.
Forgot this: How much traffic is there on that highway? It looks like they are only open for Herbie.
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.
Magnificent! Fitting illustrations to Zainab’s famous story of your travels. But do they grow dates in South America?
It is wonderful, we’ve already seen a lot of date palm trees! But unfortunately the harvest is not yet, so we’re looking forward to having dates in the US again 😉
