We are back in Lima from Ayacucho despite the fact that Ayacucho is physically closer to Cusco and hence the altiplano of Bolivia and Lake Titicaca which is our next phase of travel, the roads in-between are dirt, scary, and have a good chance of being washed out. The bus from Ayacucho to Cusco takes 20 hours! So we decided to come back to Lima and plan our next move from here. We are trying to find out if flying to cusco won´t be too expensive. It seems this is what many people do rather than chance the rains.
