Peru, Peru

the country of the big sights in South America - the Nazca lines, Machu Picchu, Titikaklake. For Tobi was the Titikakalake since his childhood a faszinating word and place, who knows why and Machu Picchu is faszinating since we saw the first picture. After packaging our christmas present and the start of our personally vendetta we went from  Lima to Nazca and Cusco to the Titikakalake. The data about the streets are in hours and not in kilometers and you should calculate quite good otherwise you can camp at 4200 m. We only can say, that we have been rarely after so less movement been short of breeth. We are feeling the hights, because we are continuly at about 3800 m. Climp the steps and running is hard for the lung, because she trys to get oxygen, but there is not enough. 
On the other side Peru is disappointing. On the entrence of each city is a huge garbage dump in front and on the end as well. The houses are mostly in bad condition as we know it from the Eastern Bloc in Europe. Only that the Peruians not even plastering the stones or put on colour. Very often you get the impression, they did something till the point you can use it and than they just leave it. If a house is plastered and painted than only the front side. We have been prepared that they are poor. But we have not been prepared, that the entrence fees are so high, which we think is a huge contrast.
Other countrys, other conventions.

The differences could not be bigger between countryside and city.
And the traffic is the absolutly horror. Who things in Italy they are driving chaotic, this is 10 times as much worse.

Left: The reverse of the tourist flow - 200 USD per person you have to pay, if you want to go from Cusko to Machu Picchu. If you think, that one meal costs in a market hall 1 USD = 3 Soles we can not imagine in which relation that could be. At other sights it is a shame but it is similar. The cathedral in Cusko costs 25 Soles, the Secet Vally 120 Soles. Machu Picchu was enough for our budget.
Reight: After we came back from Machu Picchu we were with Philipp and Veronique (unterwegs mit einer Susuki V-Strom) in the Norton Rats Tavern - super burger for 10 Soles, only to compare with entry fees.
