Downtown Puno

Wednesday – March 30, 2010 – The Markets and Downtown

When it was time to board the bus, we discovered that we were heading to the market.  Not one of the craft or textile markets like Cusco, but a real food market where the locals buy and sell their meats, fish, produce, grains and fruits. 

After the tour of the market, we were going to go downtown and stop at the main plaza.  Unfortunately, there was a political demonstration underway, and the local police advised us to just keep moving along…  which we did… and we were off to Sillustani and the Puno countryside.
