Piura... Not Peru! In Peru

A travel blog entry by howszmig


... places. Piura is pretty modern, nice clean town. We have wandered about, but again, not much going on here. We leave today for Lima. 18 hours on the bus. Feeling myself again. Thank god. Looking forward to getting to some Gringo hostels, as we feel a little cut off and not seen any foreigners in days. Hope for more of an exciting update for you all next. Ps Inka Kola is the ...

9.1 Piura: and the journey in

A travel blog entry by sam.floy


... drove off. All those left on the bus then put onrucksacks and began walking through the picket line(s).

On about 3 occasions (at roughly 10 minute intervals) we were told "just five more minutes" until we were to be through. When this did happen (around 10am) we grouped together enough for a collectivo (shared taxi) and dashed along to Mancora.
