We (Casey, Luke, Nikki and I) got into Piura in the early afternoon after crossing the border from Ecuador into Peru (woohoo!).

The local fishermen were on strike, and had set up several roadblocks, forbidding the passage of any public transport. There was nothing the company could do, so they unloaded all the ...
