Discovering Puno Peru with a child
We have washing to do.
The bathroom is a no go zone with three lines strung up.
We have been on the go, and it is a down day.
We need to book bus tickets.
We book tomorrow with ease.
So we venture out.
We then try to get a taxi to the Puma on the hill.
He then tries to get more money, so we just get out and refuse to pay.
He has taken us further out of our way.
We haggle over the fair for the next two drivers.
Next thing we are on dirt roads.
We find the Puma, and there is also some other interesting snake heads and frogs.
A weird place.
Then ask to go to the Condor.
He has no idea how to change gear, or use a handbrake.
Let alone together to do a hill start.
He whirls around a corner – thankfully there is no cars.
I see a lady with a horse and 2 donkeys and I suggest we get out and use them.
He won’t stop.
Finally he drops us at the steps to the Condor.
Inside the tower, is a spiral staircase that leads to the lookout.
The view is incredible.
On the way down we see a poor calf tied up in the sun.
My son is so gentle with it.
He talks and strokes it.
We “moto-taxi” back to the hotel.
