To get to Peru, which we need to go to, to get our flight, we got bus tickets for a bus all the way south over the border to a beach town called Mancora (about 8 hours in total). Our bus broke down just before the border and not to bore you with the details but there was a LOT of worrying conversations and confusion in the following chaos ...

Whale I never!

The last couple of days were planned to be 'beach chillout' before the jungle and trekking that we've got coming up over next couple of weeks - that has certainly been partially true.
