Arrived in Cusco after buying new tickets in La Paz – hope the travel insurance works!
However we couldn't get away without another hiccup – at check in we were told to board through gate 2. Arrived at the gate 30 mins ahead of time and gate is closed with no-one around. Flight status …
Another 5am wake-up to start our trip to Machu Pichu. Touring Peru like this can be tiring and next time we definitely need to schedule a few rest days in between the sites.
