Our drive back to Lake Chapala from Sayulita was made a bit more interesting by not one, but two overturned mango trucks. They pack those little trucks to the gills and they pack them high. Imagine how much ONE milk crate of mangoes must weigh. Multiply that by HUNDREDS.
One of the crashes had already cleared except for the thousands of mangoes littering the side of the road. People, especially on easy to stop motorcycles, were helping themselves to the delicious free fruit. We got stuck in the second one, but luckily only for about a half hour, when the police starting one way traffic around the crash site. Again, plenty of free mangoes for the taking. Did Rose stop and let me grab even one? Nope.
We are Rose and Ray. Rose is Peruvian by birth and US citizen by choice. I am retired and Rose retired recently. This is our second trip (of six, so far) to Peru and as such, this blog may not be quite as exciting as our first one would have been. Last time, we did the Machu Picchu thing, Paracas boat tour, and Nazca lines, the Señor de Sipan Museo, and all the normal tourist stuff. This time, we are here for R&R. Two months of it. We'll try to not post anything TOO boring.... full info
