25000ch with bathroom
not very nice for the price, but ok for now
16:42siseta time in downtown putre
Putre is a nice little town, but nobody is home.
The problem for solo traveller is it is almost impossible to book any tour...
There are lots of workers, but no tourists... most tourists come here by car, so nobody is booking tour... if you are by yourself, you have to be lucky to hit any tour....

anything interesting has to be reached by car, without car, there's only a short trail to entertain you for an hour or so...
Most tour companies are locked up, most look deserted...

The village setting is quite good, but there's nothing much todo here...day or night....
19:20dinner at muka restaurant again
no luck for tour so far...
disappointed, leaving tomorrow...
taste so so, a bit plaint...
19:38Omelet with potatoes
3500ch for omelet
1200ch for potatoes...
the omelet is rather good, I like the Lilac? added to the egg, it's an Andean veggie special to the area...
