... all the twinkling city lights below us. In case you're ever in Cusco, the bar is joined with the 'Viewpoint Hostel', perched up high in the San Blas neighbourhood... NOT to be missed. I should start charging commission!

Then we went to a bar that is sydney siders pretty much thought was world bar cos they had teapot. The night escalated ridiculously quickly.
