When I woke up in the morning at 5am, the rain was at it again. This time it wasnīt just the tin roof making it seem worse, it really was heavy. I had to hang around for a while and then I decided to just go for it just before 6am. I must have looked quite strange walking back along the railway tracks with my blue Umbrella.

The walk back to Santa Teresa was fairly uneventful. I just got up a good head of steam and stormed back quickly, stopping for a coffee at the railway station half way along the track. I managed to breeze into Santa Teresa before 11am and get on a bus straight away that whisked me to Santa Maria, now I was home! I managed to get the same room as before in the hostel. I could have jumped on a bus straight away to Cusco, but there was something about Santa Maria that I really liked. I think it was the weather, it was pretty warm all the time, as opposed to Cusco which gets really cold once the sun goes down.

I ended up spending two nights here, just enjoying the ambiance of the town and not doing much. I did have to leave in the end though, which was sad.

The bus back to Cusco was uneventful, if not long. Originally Iīd thought about just switching buses in Cusco and heading straight to Puno, however when I arrived I really didnīt feel like sitting on a bus much longer. Instead I headed back to my old hostel there, sadly my old room was occupied and I had to stay in a different one.

Here I met Frank again and then a couple of new faces, Shaye from Canadan and Sebastian from Ayachucho, Peru. Frank had some other plans so headed off to leave the rest of us to it. Sebastian was in town due to some work event, he was heading out with his work mates later on and I was invited along, with Shaye that he already knew from Ayachucho.

We had great fun with Sebastianīs work mates, we basically hung around one of the Plazas in town in the company of Mr Cuba Libre, before heading off to a club at 2am! It was a bizarre way to spend the night and absolutely freezing outside at that time. When I saw daylight spilling in through the windows I knew it was time to go home.

Sunday was a bit of a quiet chill day and I didnīt get back on the road again until Monday, only a couple of days later than planned!
