This is the 4th day since crossing over into Peru. Climbs decreased and I am now on the Pacific in Pascamayo for a total of 120 km.

The first night out of Ecuador we bushcamped. Many long thorns caused several flats. Traffic in towns is a danger especially the three wheel taxis everywhere going in all directions. We have another day along the coast and then we have a rest day.

Peru so far reveals much poverty. As i spin my pedals I observe locals doing what they do to just get by. I am often reminded of India. Basically, I cruise down the road avoiding interaction with those who yell out. Once out of a town I settle in and just keep up the cadence.
