I arrived in Mancora after a long bus trip from Lima. I had a good company on the way: a doctor working in Lima and going home to rest (in a town about 2 h away from Mancora).

A good thing about travelling alone is that you are more open to meet new people and make friends. The bad thing is that then you separate, as each of them follows their own path, and then you are again alone, on your own... :o(.

I very much would prefere to have a friend travelling with me... itīs getting tiring to be alone...

Well... getting back to my arrival in Mancora: when getting down from the bus, a couple of young Chilean got down with me and we started to speak and decided to search for a hostel together...

After about a half an hour of search (me- with my 23 kg backpack in my back :( ) we found a place, cheap and relatively nice (at night the heat was almost unbearable :o( ).

We only stayed a day and a half in Mancora... the beach was crowded and not that nice... at least not when for 2 years youīve been accostumed with the beaches in Brasil... Also, the road we were taking to the hous it was dark during the night and smelled very bad... that you didnīt even wanted to think what the mud was smelling like...

One good thing about Mancora were the parties they were having in the night on the street, and the ceviche (raw fish "cooked" only in lemon juice... mmmm... great). I remember my friend Adrian had stommack problems after eating ceviche in one of the best places in Arequipa (arequipa is famous for its very good quality ceviche...)--- I guess itīs a matter of luck :)))

Together with the 2 Chilean (Maria Paz and Daniel) we left for Montanita in the second night... (Montanita is a beach in the SW of Ecuador... )

A new country was waiting to be discovered :o)
