Twisty, scenic mountain roads. Just what we all needed after a few days of boring riding through the desert. It was a short ride to Cajabamba today, so we decided to hang around Cajamarca for a bit and get a late start to the day.
Once into the small town of Cajabamba, we followed our routine of riding to the central plaza (which is usually in the middle of the town and nicest part) and then searched for a hotel and dinner.
The next day, we were on the bikes early for a possibly long day of mountain roads back down to the coast and the popular beach town of Huanchaco.
Shortly down the road, we came to a bridge that had been washed out the day before.. and it wasn’t expected to be repaired for another 2-3 days. We were told to back track to the small town of Marcabal and from there we could find a dirt trail that would take us South.
We decided to take a day off here in Huanchaco to relax and hang out. I spent a few hours sorting through all the photos and videos from the past few days but was unable to get the blog updated since the internet was too slow.
Later on in the afternoon, we went to check out the Chan Chan ruins. Unfortunately we arrived just as they were closing, so we didn’t get to inside the park.
