South America | Peru | Central Peru – Chanchamayo – first time in the jungle
.fosser og bading og maur i senga.
var tre dager i la merced. bodde p? et hostal med trine og carlos.
venninna til kusina til carlos gifta seg i san ramón (veldig n?rme la merced) – og jeg var selvf?lgelig velkommen til ? komme ogs? (!)
we went to la merced first of all because of the wedding. it was a 8 hour busride from lima – a distance which is defined as close by peruvians.
besides the wedding we had a couple of days to visit the town and the region.
in the morning we walked up on a hill where a gigantic cross was raised to get a good view of la merced.
then in the afternoon, as we were walking downtown, we found ourself an unofficial guide who offered to show us around in the region for little money. so off we went.
a bridge had just collapsed, but with just a little delay we got to where we wanted. he took us to visit a ‘native village’ (but i think they sort of dressed up for the tourists..), and then shortly before the sun set he took us to a waterfall.
the next day we arranged to meet him again and see another waterfall. and this time we were prepared to go swimming.
haden’t i been so much against it we would’ve gone to the zoo too.
