DAY 140-141, Feb. 27-28, 2012, Lima, Temp 21-32C (620/18,060km)
|Lovely room in Naylamp|
|Cold water, nice beach and great seafood in Huanchaco|
|Patrick's bike sitting at Naylamp |
because of a wrist injury. Apparently
he flew to Chile to meet his girlfriend.
Funny to stumble upon the bike.
|People movers, not sure the price, but I'm thinking it's low|
|No one had to pay going towards|
Lima, just if you wanted to get out
|The classic kid in the back window fixated on the bike|
|Road side village|
|Tire repair shop|
|Cop stop ahead|
|The veteran showing the rookie|
|Patience wins every time|
|It just looks like a tight squeeze, but I had lots of time.|
|Human powered transports|
|Love the interest|
|I couldn't stop shooting|
|Some Inca cola and crackers on|
special with a gas purchase.
I live on crackers!
|Pee break side of the road at a construction stop. Oh|
yeah, there's cars beside me just out of the picture.
|Double lane climb getting very close to Lima|
|Villa Ancon 30km from Lima|
Riding into Lima as the traffic began to build.
|How is this guy going to weave|
through the traffic?
|Incredible lines to get to the train|
|Amazing views from Larcomar the coastal shopping center|
|Hostel Rivendell looks like a jail|
|Carlo Vellutino a Dakar rider from Lima who took the bike |
for a test ride in order to diagnose my vibration problem.
Carlo also offered free accommodation at his family's hotel
near Machu Picchu. Very nice. See Peru South post.
|Kevin and I search the town for |
|A bearing change for $12 to eliminate|
possibilities. Free labour, but no fix.
|While waiting for Kevin to talk to a mechanic about his|
Buell and dying of thirst I purchased the only thing in
the area to keep me going. First popsicle in years.
|Main park near Miraflores|
|Am I actually in Canada taking this photo or what?|
|Cool fruit juices freshly sealed at|
La Lucha Sangucheria
|My last photo of Kevin as he and I tried to find out where I could|
buy a cop helmet.

|Most the buses have doormen trying to convince you to |
hop on their bus. I'm guessing they are privately owned
|Even better. Venders jump on buses|
at lights and sell everything!
|Dodgy shopping area Malvinas|
|Bike cops in the Malvinas area. I kept my camera low.|
|What's the name? Blue Church?|
|Note this poor meal as I think this|
was the start of feeling ill for the
next weeks! Don't eat too cheap!
The meat was liver and not good.
|Thank god those are cones and not a barrier as it was tight|
|More seaside towns south of Lima|
|Couldn't figure this out for a while.|
They are enclosures to protect
vegetable/fruit growth in the desert.
|Best ad ever! And massive too!|
|Surf spot with shops|
|Tonnes of advertising on the Panamerican South|
|Road side life|
|Beautiful!!! Shot while riding too|
|Awesome looking armoured truck|
|Intense colour as the sun began to drop|
|Naked dude on the road side???|
|Entering Huacachina around 7pm|
|Why so angry little buddy?|
|Every place with a pool as the temp|
was 30C+. People coming from
Machu Picchu were happy to arrive!
|Hostel Carole del Sur, Good.|
|Love it. Cool Grandma and happy grandson taking a spin|
|She's not laughing at me?|
|Let's go there|
|Strap it on, Velcro that is, wait velcro???|
|Don't worry I know what I'm doing|
|Much better than the video|
|Sand and more Sand|
|Prepping at the top|
|Outstanding. We are heading back now, right?|
|crazy, I can't see|
|Great shot of Huacachina|
|Location of the winery seemed very dodgy|
|Daniel Alvarez and grandkids.|
Owner of Piscos y Vinos
|Nadja (Latvia) really jumping into it|
|After the work it was time to play|
|Connor didn't partake in the initial|
stomp, but after some wine...
|No idea, Me and Nadja|
|Proving to all my eyes don't shut|
when I'm drinking
Last note: Good group of people from the wine tour, so good, we all decided to go for a 2am swim together. Easily one of the best days of my trip!!!
|From a distance this guy looked like a tour rider|
