We didn't know this would be our last day on the moto's!

Day 41 (388 km)

      Had an early breakfast outside the hostel around  7 am and an half an hour later  we were on our way to Cusco. The road went high up through the mountains and at one given time we passed 4700 meters. Had a local lunch for a dollar, but it was good and continued our way to Cusco and we're waved through some police checkpoints and was glad about that, because it seems you need insurance for the bikes and you can get only one year and of course, it takes days to get it! Just before Cusco it started to rain agin and we held up for an hour or so and then made it dry to Cusco.

    When I was asking directions in town to a particular hostel, the guy told me there is one right here and you won't find any cheaper in town and when I looked inside I saw 2 motorcycles and thought, it must be good and it started to rain again, so I made up my mind quick and went inside.

One old guy showed me the room which was large but basic, with no heater and with shared bath rooms outside. I asked him if he would store 2 bikes for 10 weeks with our luggage and he said he would do that for a little less as $ 1.75 a day and they also had  good wifi and a kitchen we could use and it had a refrigerator to store our beer and other things. So we were sold very quick and decided soon after, that we would pick him up on the storage deal and made the decision not to go to Lima, but stay a few days in Cusco and then go to Machu Pichu by train and fly later in the week to Lima to connect with our flight to Roatan on the 22nd of December and then we had enough time to clean the bikes, do some maintenance, sort out our luggage, what we leave behind and what we carry home and not last, rest our body's from the 13000 km trip through rough terrain in the last 6 weeks.

Just booked our free return trip on points back to Cusco for the 3rd of March, to bring the moto's back to Honduras
