I woke up at 4:15, got dressed, and said a quick goodbye to West before heading out to the bus that would start my journey to Huaraz, a Central Peruvian city close to the Cordillera Blanco mountain range and the Huascaran National Park, which features giant snow-capped mountains. I'm going to miss West a lot. I connect with him in a way I've never connected with another person. We inspire each other in a purely artful way and he has turned me into a better writer and given me more ...

As the bus ascended the excellent road towards the pass, we expected it to get ...
... but no banos for the ladies on the way!
The fertile valley of the raging river Santa became more and more barren with rice paddies g iving way to sugar cane, then maize and finally cotton before the primary source of income became coal mining it seemed, though many derelict buildings were a sure indication of the difficulty of eking out a living there. Most of the houses were adobe and even the roofs were adobe laid on a bed of sticks – if you were lucky ...
