Last day in Cusco - and we are looking forward to leave! It i too cold for us and so we decided to head directly to Piura to visit our friends Laura and Raul who we met did the tour to Uyuni with. Not only so we would not miss them but as well because we had enough of the cold and were looking forward to some warm weather in the north!

But before we leave there is our to-do-list. After breakfast there is one more important thing to do: post all the things we bought and send them home. This time the package goes to Denmark!

At the post office you first have to choose a used cardboard box where your stuff fits in. Fortunately we found one from Serpost Peru, makes it look more reliable at least, and stuffed all goods into it. Then all is sealed and closed plus the adress paper that we have written is sealed too. Afterwards you go to the lady behind the desk and fill in the official form, and pay. That's it.

Hm... even Bolivia is more secure with content and about what goes in and out, so lets hope that they don't excavate all because the post office did not require a list of content... !

Afterwards we quickly went into the centre because Maria's sneakers came to the end of their life. The inner sole started to vanish while they were being washed and thus were left behind. Because those where we can't hike with are still repaired and used for children from the hostel. Bad for Marias budget, good for the cause: new sneakers were found in the shop, as well as a new rain jacket - lighter and smaller to pack!

Quickly we retourned to the hostal, donated the old shoes and made an avocado sandwich - for the road.... and then off to the Cruz del Sur bus terminal!

We're heading north! Sun, hello! Bye Altiplano...
