After a long day on the boat and seeing different islands, we returned to our hostel, Inka's rest. The owner, Alfredo, is a Uruguayan married to a Peruvian. Staying there was like staying with old friends. We met some Italians from the hostel and decided that we would all cook dinner together.
The next morning, before catching the extremely dirty and rocky bus back to Cuzco, we toured the street market. There, we drank some Peruvian "orange julius", where at about 17 cents for two cups of blended fruits and alfalfa, is an amazing deal. However, passing US health codes would be a whole other matter. I don't know what other peole think, but I think it's worth the risk to eat whatever is out there!!
On the bus, we bought 10 loaves of bread from a bus vendor for 50 cents and we were ready to go.
