... beach again. We made the journey back and we found out why so many people take shared taxis everywhere here, it was a long walk back.

By the following morning, we had decided that Peru was going to take too long much time out of our schedule: my medical knowledge was proving to be patchier than I had expected and I knew I would need a reasonable amount of time each day for revision.
