Waiting for the train to Puno

On July 31st, a Tuesday, we spent another day in Cusco. We had decided to take the train to Puno, and as they only leave on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, we had to wait a day for it. We went up to the Inca fortress of Saqsaywaman, which sits on a hill above Cusco. The stones there were really huge, but there was not much left to suggest how the fortress once looked. The views of the city were nice though, especially from the neighbouring hill where a statue of Jesus overlooks the city.
Afterwards, we just chilled out at the hostel. I got yet another debilitating headache - I assume they are caused by the altitude - and so I went to bed early on. Alan cooked a nice Thai/Peruvian curry for the other guys at the hostel, and went out on the town with them.
