Puno > Tacna – 438km
She was trying very hard to sell us all her toilet paper
Was sunny but very crisp this morning. We took a lesser known road through rural Peru (video to come) -36B/32 – and it was a very good choice. Hardly any vehicles, good road, and outstanding scenery. Charlie said to me – it is so picturesque it doesn’t seem real. Well put.
When we first saw alpacas we took so many photos, today we passed several large herds of them but not a photo clicked.
Part of the Alto Plano (High Plane)
First time at this height on bikes for us– 4,592m = 15,065ft
Once we started on the descent it was a long way down of constant switchbacks. The landscape changed dramatically to rock and back to orange sand. Finally the roads were just long and straight so we covered off some quick miles and were settled in our hotel nice and early.
PS: I’m sure looking forward to some cuddles with these two little guys
