Afterthat, when we said good-bye to Marketa and Pepa (they continued their trip to Bolivian beach of Titicaca Copacabana) we left by bus for Arequipa, the second biggest town of Peru.
Our second excursion to the Titicaca Lake was headed for Taquille Lake, where the countryside could remind the Mediterranean. So, we left, (together with Pepa and Marketa,who arrived to Puno early morning) for the pier. Here, we met a man, who sold us the tickets yesterday, and he lead us to rather luxurious vessel.
We arrived to Puno, after sleepless night, at five o'clock in the morning, and were contacted immediately by accommodation beaters, as this became usuall during our stay in Peru. The first man offered us the rate of Sols 15 per a night, and such offer was acceptable.
We decided that for Cusco sightseeing, including environs, will be reserved the whole day. In the evening, Markéta and Pepa left us, in order to visit Pisac, as they had time enough for such excursion. The rest of our group decided to transfer to Titicaca Lake.

There was Easter Monday, when we returned from Santa Cruz trek, nevertheless, all people in Huaraz worked. So, we bought tickets to Lima and tried to solve a transfer from Lima to Cuzco, and our trip continued.
The next day begun, especially for Milan, in bad way. In the morning, he found that somebody stole him little trek sticks in the night. It was not a good ascertainment, indeed.
