Beached tourists in Peru: In this hostel in Cusco, young guests make the best of the situation.
Around 3000 vacationers are stuck in Peru – in party hostels, lonely in the jungle or under strict room arrest. Some have the time of their lives. Others pray for salvation.
DThe nerves are blank in the WhatsApp group “Quarantine Consul Cusco 2”. The German honorary consul founded the Peruvian Andes to inform the stranded about their departure. But there is not much to say, except: “Please wait.” And tourists have been hearing this for two weeks now.
So they drive the boredom away with all kinds of discussions. With 256 participants, a thousand messages a day quickly come together. Most of them are complaints about senseless exchanges.
