Today I took the train from Puno to Cusco – Andean Explorer – as recommended by Jan and Jens. THANKS FOR THAT. Really a great experience going through the Andes by train (up to 4200m if I remember correctly). If I would have know upfront that it takes 9 hours I probably wouldn’t have taken that one – but it didn’t feel like 9 hours at all (ok, the Pisco sour and the beer helped 🙂 ).

you could walk around – nice observation desk at the end of the train. REALLY good bar (best Pisco sour so far!). Live entertainment, etc… Good lunch!

I think I had 5 Pisco’s and a couple of beers… (Benefit of travelling alone: happy hour means TWO pisco sours for MEEEEEE … yes there was a happy hour on the train – actually two)

At the last pic you can see the view of my hotel over cusco (central plaza – plaza de armas) – I liked that hotel!
