Road Block Explained
Otto found this article on what went down in Sicauni, the town between Puno and Cuzco where there were roadblocks earlier this week (which was why I was stuck in Puno). It seems that there's a new hydroelectric dam planned, and the campesinos are against it. Interestingly, 40 police were injured in a recent confrontation, yet only 10 campesinos were admitted to the hospital.
