22 hours from Lima, 12 from Chiclayo

Well, after three days and two nights of travelling, here I am. Cusco. From where I was in Cabo Blanco, it was about 2500 km. Isn´t that crazy! Peru is bigger than it looks. And going from Lima to Cusco was 22 hours of winding thru the Andes. But this morning when we woke up... the sun was shining on the hills and there were trees everywhere, and green terraces and the clouds were both above and below us. Like a fairy tale. In my love affair with the sea, I forgot my love for the mountains.
But I got here to the Loki hostal and they´re working on a waiting list. Which means I am just lurking around for a bit until 1;00 pm which is checkout time. Hopefully someone leaves. If not, I´ll go elsewhere. Not a big deal, but some friends were going to meet me here.
What I really want is a long, hot shower. I did two night bus trips back to back, with about 4 hours yesterday to hang out in Lima. I went to the Lima Museum of Art and it was cool even if it really didn´t have much. But I have been in the same clothes for two days and my hair needs a good scrub too. SIgh.
Then I think I want to go see the Incan museum in town today. Then to sleep, in a real bed, super early. Tomorrow is the festival of the sun! The whole of Cusco parties.
Bye for now!
