Where I stayed
Needless to say we were happy to hand over a few quid to cover their petrol costs when we got to the hotel!!!
We arrived back from our adventures in the jungle to cusco Airport and deserted streets the airport is well outside the centre of the city but not a taxi in sight. After as few minutes up pulls a huge police jeep the cops told us (via a spanish couple we were travelling with) that the taxi drivrs were on strike because the taxes were too high - they missed out the part that the taxi drivers were protesting about the police issuing too many ´Fnes´which we knew already. Anywat they said hop in to their jeep aand they would get us through the barricades they drove us round all the skips and rocks and piles of broken glass it waaaaaas weird and we said what if they wont let us through the cop reached down under his seat and produced a huge machine gun saying no poblemo!!!!
