Bolivian Border

So we finally dragged ourselves away from Cusco in order to head to Bolivia. We'd had a good run there, highlights being heading out to Machu Picchu (of course), staying at Yello River with Andy, Tati and Maya on the way there, winning the Pub Quiz at The Real McCoy (and sharing the bottle of wine we won with Sally, the fine owner and head chef), drinking countless coffees at Jack's Cafe and adding a bit more to our Spanish at Amauta Spanish School. All in all, a good, relaxing time, but all good things must come to an end...

Desert Update

After all the visa hassles, it was satisfying to finally see the visa in my passport (this time with a photo included - Iranian visas are going upmarket!). We bolted straight for the bus station, only to find that the 15:30 bus was cancelled for the day. We were redirected to a bus to Agri, about three quarters of the way to Dogubayazit and the Iranian border, where we hoped to get a bus the rest of the way.
