This morning we got up early to get our bus to Puno. When we were checking out, the hotel confirmed that the bus strike is still on and as such we are stranded in Arequipa. Fortunately our room here is still available.

Today has been the laziest day of our trip so far. We have spent the day sunning ourselves in the hotel garden hoping that all will be sorted by tomorrow. I'm writing this in the early evening and expect that as the sun is now fading we'll spend some time tonight re-planning (again) the rest of South America and the start of Canada. Ecuador looks like it will be two weeks not three (unless we go to the Galapagos Islands) so we are about one month ahead of our initial plan!
