Peru, it’s…huge. I only visited the south half of the country but it felt very, very, very big. Travelling here is getting used to spending 18 hours in a doubtful suspension-less bus on the tight road of the Andes Cordillera. It’s also getting used to trembling with fear every time another bus crosses your path in the turns, sitting by a small lady, crossing herself, every time the worst was avoided…
But not only that !! It’s most of all, get filled with wonder by the beauty of its towns and cities, sometimes magically planted in the heart of the mountains. And the mountains, let’s talk about them, the Andes Cordillera, vast and so deep that sometimes it makes you feel dizzy.
But Peru is also Lima, the tremendous capital city ruled by this marvelous mess I loved so much in Guatemala. I will always remember the day I got on a city center crazy bus: a passenger explained to me that the bus driver was racing against the other bus following him, in fear of not being fast enough and losing his clients…Have a nice trip!
