Next morning - up at about 0415 so we could get a 0500 bus to Huaraz, An interesting trip, including a flat tyre! That was dutifully changed on the side of the road and we still arrived in Huaraz at the scheduled time of 0730. One has to adjust to totally different transit times in Peru, the road from Chiquian to Huaraz is only about 80-90 k, and for the most part is a very good and easy drive, after ...

The dancing was good and really cool and ...
... dish. Another night we bought ingredients and cooked a meal with our new found friends for a cosy night in exchanging stories and discussing the cultures of our home countries. It's so interesting meeting travellers from all over the world. Our goodbye last night felt genuinely sad. We definitely hope to keep in touch!
Another couple of buses were required for our onward journey south to explore another part of Peru. But that’s all for ...
