... stand on the deck of the ship and look at Salaverry all you see are gray colored sand dunes with a green strip high above the town where they are growing crops.

We are staying in Pacific Beach which is supposed to be a great outdoor area (when it's not raining...). It's pretty far from here to Downtown, but there are trolleys and buses and the journey doesn't take that long. A bit nearer is the ...
