247 km / 56 kph ave / 128 kph max
6:45 hrs tot / 5:45 hrs mov
This morning we awoke to rain. It had been raining all night. Because of the heavy rains, we were advised by the locals not to try any of the small dirt roads to the south. With south and east no out of the running, we grudgingly decided to head back the way we came to meet up with Ruta 3 in Cusco. The rain didn´t seem to have any effect on the road back except for a little bit deeper river crossing than the previous day.
In Sicuani, we got a hostal for $50 sols. I paid an extra $5sols for a hot shower that electrocuted me three times – not cool.
