Location: Huaraz, Peru

MapIt`s goodbye to Huaraz today - a nice town surrounded by beautiful scenery.

Peru has so many contrasts - modern cities alongside agriculture unchanged for centuries. This was certainly true in Huaraz - our hostal had wi-fi internet access in the common room but in one of the alleyways in town there was a row of men with ancient typewriters all set to type letters for people.

We`ve had another long bus journey to get back to Lima but have decided not to spend 18 hours on the bus to Arequipa in the south of Peru and we`re typing this in the airport at Lima waiting for our flight there instead.
