Two days ago I left Cusco and headed west out of the Andes but I encountered huge rocks blocking all traffic just before Chincheros. The locals told me of an old dirt road through the mountains that would take me around the rocks so I took it and 2 hours later I rode into Chincheros where I found a hotel and some curious boys and a dog, who were my welcoming party :).

I got an early start the following day and rode through Ayacucho to Lima.
