Cusco & MP info

I was in cusco for over a month. There are plenty of cheap hostels in Cusco. In my opinion cheap and hot water are major priorities. I liked staying in San Blas area which is up the hill from the plaza de armes. I also lived in La Florida for some time.
Random info: Look up the cusco weekly online before you go. They also provide some basic info.
Taxi's are cheap 2 soles for in town....
Los Perros is one of the best bars I found. It's behind the plaza by the movie theater (there's only one).
I was in Cusco in June and July so this should all be fairly recent information for you. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Oh and in lima, stay at The Point hostel. They were the best beds I found in the 3 months of travel and a laid back atmosphere.

San Diego to San Fran-guide for travel virgins?

2007-03-26 20:48:46 by quidditian

My best friend of 16 years and I are both hermits. He lives in Florida, I've lived in San Diego for the past 6 years. Other than an annual vacation to see each other in our respective towns, neither of us goes more than a 20 mile radius outside our front door.
Last year, while I was visiting him in Florida, we had a Big Fake Wedding to commemorate our bond. Now we're going to take a Big Fa...and the Guggenheim if I can torment him with art overload (shhhhhhhhh...don't let him know it's on my list).
Also, once in San Fran, would like to stay in a nice B&B (preferably one purportedly haunted) in the Castro District...if not in Castro, at least somewhere central. If not in Castro and/or haunted, would still appreciate any recommendations. Central is still key.
Any thoughts?
