A Travellerspoint blog

There's nothing quite like a 12 hour Sunday drive

The longest windiest drive of my life.

overcast 18 °C

So heres a map to show you just how far we have travelled already

Anyways to make it from our last destination to Carjamarca there is only one way and that's to take the back roads of Peru which pretty means a gravel or dirt road that dangles itself on the sides of mountains. So with this being our only option we hired a car as mini buses dont fit and headed off

The road we travlled along chiseled into the side of the mountain

Db with the luggage as we all had to hop out to change the tyre

View from 3000m

Everytime we got to a bumb we had to get out so the car wouldnt belly out

We finally reached a destination and what a beautiful place it is by night.
The cathedral Cajamarca

Db and cathedral

Myself and catherdal

We are finally back in Wifi territory and the speed is proberly just normal but dang it feels fast. So i thought i would take this opportunity to upload more photos of the days past for all of ya to have a stalk through :)

Me at the plaza in a small town of Llama were the people still live quite traditionally

Cute little church in the city of Llama

Local girls in Llama the elder woman believe that their souls may be captured in cameras so weren't willing to have a photo

Local watering hole in Moyobamba

Me at watering hole

Me with my new friends, local school kids from Moyobamba

Playing volleyball with the locals

It's a tucan, i wanted to hold it but they laughed and said it would fly away

Well there's some photos for you to have a look through
We are off to explore Carjamarca now
so until we post again stay well and safe
