On the way to Iquitos

We arrive at Trujillo early morning. Adrià and I want to keep on the way the same day, so I look for transportation to Tarapoto and he looks to Equador.

My bus leaves at 3 PM, so I have few hours to visit the city of Trujillo .

Huaraz and the Cordillera Blanca

Waiting for the bus i have to take to Huaraz I meet Toni (Valencia), another traveler around South America. And after the night bus ride that we gain 3000 meters of altitude, we look for accommodation together.
As Toni, I want to not waste time in Huaraz, so we find a tour to the Santa Cruz 4 days trekking the next morning.
The accomodation (El Refugio) have views of the Cordillera Blanca, WiFi, kitchen and a sink for washing clothes... and cheap!

The rest of the day I visit the market, I bring a pants to fix (here they arranged everything ...) and I rest.
On the hike tour we end up being 11! ... a South Korean (Dae Jong), a New Zealander, one French girl, one Austrian girl, one Czech girl and two girls from United States. It’s a very varied group.

I see the ocean after a few months during the bus ride that is taking me to the Capital of Peru.
I am doing CouchSurfing in the Lis family house, she is a teacher and student.
She have to correct some exams and also have to study ... and I need some time to rest...
Is Sunday, and for lunch we go to eat ceviche! My afternoon is another relax time after the 20-hour bus ride.
Lis lives with hes family (grandmother, parents and brothers) in a very convenient area and 200 meters from the Museo de la Nación.
We go biking before go to sleep with Lis. In the area there are many bike paths and sports outdoors. A perfect plan to sleep well.
I go to visit the Miraflores district (which is commercial) and where you can see the remains pre-Incas Huaca Pucllana, a pyramid built of adobe and are recovering from oblivion.

From there I walk to the neighbourhood of Barranco, a more bohemian neighbourhood that I spend all the afternoon walking around.
When I return home I feelt sick... not a good lunch menu... So I rest.
At the morning I go visit the Museo de la Nacion, Lis has recommended me the photography exhibition.
Chifa home made rice at home for lunch and I go with Lis to the Micro Cento of Lima.
She shows me the places I shoud visit
Next morning I visit the Micro Cento, the Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI), the House of Literature and I have lunch at the chinese quarter.
I walk until it is time to return to collect your luggage and say goodbye to the Lis and her family.
I’m taking a bus to Huaraz...
