The overnight bus to Puno was a nightmare. I was sat by the window trying to hide away my coughing and spluttering from people, but the window had sheets of ice falling off from the cold and my feet were boiling hot from the heating. 6 and a half hours of constant coughing, I felt so guilty for the other passengers and should not have gone anywhere.

One 24-hour bus ride later brought us deep into the desert to the tourist town of San Pedro de Atacama. As ...
