Now it's time to make a little recap of my visit to Peru.
- By bike: 540
- By bus: ~ 1900
- By taxi: ~ 250
Peru has been a great experience very rich in discoveries for me. This is the first time I have travelled to South America and I really do not speak very well Spanish (I have improved since then), so the displacement was total as soon as I arrived.
I thank Gonzalez who joined me for two weeks, it was really nice and I finally got to speak French. I also thank the whole group with whom I made the trek of the Salkantay, the atmosphere was great.
Peru has a very rich culture, just walk a little bit to realize it. Nevertheless, in view of the number of things to see and the greatness of the country, I focused on its nature and its mountains. That is why, apart from Machu Picchu and some buildings in places, I did the impasse on the Sacred Valley, or the Chavín of Huantar. Nor did I have time to see the multicoloured mountain, the canyon of Colcan, the NAZCA lines … The country is anyway too big and too rich, I do not think there is a way to get bored. Despite this I took full view with these snowy mountains, these gigantic trees, this lush nature by location and very dry to others …
Its height and its diversity of landscapes make it a truly splendid country and I will not speak of the intense blue waters of Lake Titicaca.
What I'm going to miss:
- The view of the White Mountains
- The warm welcome of the Peruvians
- Fresh fruit juices pressed in front of you for a ridiculous sum
- Markets: Their atmospheres and their choice of products (bio?)
- The ceviche
What I'm not going to miss:
- The traffic of Lima
- Sometimes unsanitary toilets
- The quantities of waste at the edge of certain roads
- All dogs chasing cyclists
It's time for me to explore a little more South America, hoping to come back one day to visit everything I missed.
Here it is in time and in time:
