Kel and Rob’s Travel Diary

Location: Puno, Peru

MapWell, Peru has been really nice to us so far. We have been here for 2 days now, and in that time we have been;
- sold fake bus tickets
- given counterfit notes
- for the first time in our lives been robbed
- and today we had the pleasure of being stuck in the middle of nowhere with about 200 angry protesters putting up a road block. Apparently they weren't happy with their Mayor so they took it out on the lucky commuters by putting bolders and smashed glass on the road, and burning fires in the centre lane. Then they had a disagreement amongst themselves (after we had been there for about an hour) and started going fist for fist - since we had front row seats it was great to watch!!!
