We find a place and quiet place to sleep for a night. Our first night in Puno, Around 5am a policeman ... drunk, tried to open our door ... i woke up and tried to scares him, I opened the glass and I turned to him ... He pretended, saying that some neighbor complaited of us and asked us to leave ... to avoid more confusion we just left the place and parked in a more busy place.
