Puno to Cusco – Thursday, October 27,2016

This morning we caught an 8am bus for the six and a half hour trip from Puno to Cusco. It is nice to be a bit lower and have a bit more atmosphere. Puno was at 12,580 ft and Cusco is at 11,500 ft. 

Our hotel here in Cusco is Los Apus. After checking in we went for a walk and explored for a bit. We are only a couple of blocks from the main square. 


We had dinner at Uchu Peruvian Steakhouse. Tripadvisor must have really changed restaurants in places like Cusco. Uchu is highly rated on tripadvisor.  We had a fabulous dinner. We shared ceviche. 


Then we shared soup followed by meat (beef, lamb and alpaca) on the stone. For desert we had a decadent chocolate treat.
