Tired and achey we made our way back to Cusco via the windy roads and train, listening to pan pipe music on repeat. After the 2 hour journey we couldn't wait to get off! We arrived in the early evening and after a long awaited shower and a bite to eat it was straight to bed.
The next day a few of us went horseriding. You'd think that our legs had taken enough punishment for a while, but it was nice to have someone, or something else do the walking for once.
The afternoon was spent catching up on some souvenier shopping, some of which had to be posted home as I was quickly running out of space in my backpack, with still more places to visit.
That evening we went out to celebrate our achievement. Being Halloween there were lots of people dressed up in fancy dress and children were out with their parents Trick or Treating on the street. As soon as you stepped foot onto the street you were swamped by kids holding out their pumpkin buckets in anticipation, chanting "Halloween" over and over.
