On the road between Puno and Cusco

Took an extended bus ride from Puno to Cusco today, just ahead of what promised to be massive demonstrations by Puno's dock workers. Several stops along the way.

this church was so dark, I couldn't even see what I was photographing until after the long exposure.

At an unscheduled stop for road work, got out and took some pics of the Peruvian Altiplano, the high plains between the two ranges of the Andes. So beautiful, but I wanted an extra wide angle lens!

A sign of things to come. A very significant Incan ruin, the remains of a temple to their most important god, whose name I forget. Their amazing stonework on the bottom, and adobe on top. The little tile roof was added to stop erosion.
