Wave of Protests
04.07.2007 20 °C
Surprise, surprise. Sarah´s attempting to border cross again and there´s more protests. This time they are here in Southern Peru;
Ucayali, Ayacucho, Huancavelica, and most importantly, Juliaca and Puno. The last two towns are the ones I need to cross through to get to Bolivia. I could wait longer here, but I have been in this area for more than two weeks and need to get moving.
The bus to Copacobana, on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca, leaves from Cusco every night between 8 pm and 10 pm depending on the bus company you go with. I am tempted to just go to the bus terminal and see if there is a bus. Perhaps I can just stop in Puno, on the Peruvian side of lake Titicaca for the night. On and on I argue with myself, is it safe? Will the border open? Will it be really interesting? I don´t want to stay any longer here in Cusco, I have itchy feet.
