Po Limi sva se uspesno prebila do Cordillere Blance do mesta Huaraz, ki slovi po najvisjih gorah v Peruju. Ob lepem dnevu lahko namrec na enkrat vidis kar 20 belih vrhov nad 6000mnv! Prispela sva ob 6h zjutraj in nekako so naju ujeli nepripravljena in naju nategnili z enodnevno turo do lagun Llanganuco...skoda besed, ampak na koncu je bila ze taka zalost da sva se lahko samo smejala😊 Naslednji dan sva si rekla stran od vseh agencij!! in si sama organizerala eno najboljsih tur do treh lagun Queshquecocha! Cisto sama sredi najlepse narave med vrhovoma Pastoruri (5240m) in Caullarayu (5636m)! Najlepse od vsega pa fenomenalen pogled na celotno kordiljero.

Ponoci pa sva ze picila naprej, tokrat koncno na obalo (malo za Anjo) v Trujillo. Trujillo je majhno obmorsko mestece znano po rusevinah se iz casov pred Inki (Huaca del Sol in de Luna ter zidovi mesta Chan Chan), koncno pa sva v Huanchacu vidla tudi prve surfarje in jedla znani Cheviche (surova riba marinirana v limoni in ciliju).

Zvecer pa spet cas za bus...zdej ga imava pocasi ze poln kufer, ampak je fajn ko ves kaj je "final destination"! Torej koncno sva v Mancori...tezko pricakovani dnevi za oddih, surfanje, pohajkovanje po plazi, morski hrani predvsem pa lezanju!

Tokrat malo manj besed pa vec slik, pozdravcke!

English version:
After Lima we successfully reached the Cordillera Blanca and the town of Huaraz, which is famous for the highest mountains in Peru. In clear day you can see as many as 20 white peaks above 6000m! We arrived at 6 in the morning and somehow we were caught unprepared and got screwed with the one-day tour to the lagunas Llanganuco ... waste of words, but in the end it has been such a sad thing that we could only laugh😊 The next day we said to ourself: away from all agencies! and made itself one of the best tours to the three lagoons of Queshquecocha! All alone in the middle of the most beautiful nature between the peaks Pastoruri (5240m) and Caullarayu (5636m)! The best thing of all, a phenomenal view of the whole cordillera.

At night we headed on, this time finally to the coast (something for Anja) in Trujillo. Trujillo is a small coastal town known for its ruins from the times before the Incas (Huaca del Sol and de Luna and Chan Chan city walls), and finaly in Huanchaco we saw the first surfers and tried the famous Cheviche (raw fish marinated in lemon and chilli).

In the evening, it was time for the bus again... now we have enough of it, but it's nice when you know what the "Final Destination"! So finally we are in Mancora ... eagerly-awaited days of vacation, surfing, strolling along the beach, seafood in particular lying and relaxing!

This time a little less words and more pictures. Saludos!
