Pura Vida Travels - A Guide To Travel In Latin America








After unloading my backpack after round 1 of shopping it was time to head out for round 2. I took a picture of Mama Africa disco because it's the happening place in Cusco. When I was leaving for the train at 5:30 AM the place was still rocking. Another interesting photo is the one of the mountain below. If you look at the full sized pic you can see it says "VIVA EL PERU" on the mountain in 500 foot high letters.

One of the things that continually amuses me about Peru is the way stores use cartoon characters in completely bizarre ways. This store was selling watches and they had someone dressed up as Winnie The Pooh outside. I was walking by a sports book in Lima and they had someone dressed up as Mickey Mouse handing out flyers. I'm sure the Disney folks would love that...

1 PM rolled around and it was time to go to the airport. I could have used a Sherpa to help me carry all the crap I had with me. The trip home is going to be fun because I know Iíll buy more crap in Lima. Anyway, I got to the airport and checked in with LAN. I really like this airline by the way. Itís a first class outfit. After checking in you have to pay another tax at another window. I believe itís a goofy amount like $4.83 which is nice because you get a pocket full of metal coins right before going through a metal detector.
