First off, shout out to my old man. Happy birthday.
We started the painful morning by going for some high quality ceviche which was difficult to enjoy because of our hangovers but good for getting to know some more people on Peru Hop.

Unfortunately we don't know if the drivers were okay, but the scene was a mess when we did get past. This was on the road by the coast - we had reached the Pacific Ocean!
To make up for it, ...
