Another awful bus journey, 53 hours in total with a few hours in Piura, a Peruvian town. Cruising down the North Pacifica highway there were some good views going through dunefields and small settlements, with the Pacific to our right most of the way. Got to Lima OK, walked to another bus company and there were big protests (economy, pay etc etc) with riot police ready to do some damage. I got told not to take a photo. On the bus from Lima south, we were held up for over 2 hours as some protesters had blocked the road, see pictures.
