we are planning to travel from Lima to Arequipa on the 16th of November. Due to all the warnings (robbery and crashes), I got a bit scared of travelling by overnightbus, however Cruz del Sur and Oltursa busses only leave at 16:00 and will therefore always be overnight. Is there any other option?
Second, I read there will be strikes on the 4th of November, is there anything planned for mid November? We're planning to travel from Lima - Arequipa - Puno - Cusco (arrival has to be on the 22nd of November).
