The day started early when the bus came to pick us up at the airport Hotel. We drove out of Lima and passed some of the poorer neighborhoods. Here the higher up the hill you go the poorer it is. Just the opposite of our country.
We left the coast and started up into the mountains. Five hours of mountainous roads. I did occasionally drift off to sleep but hated to as I worry about what site I might miss. So much to see. I took tons of pictures. It is hard to get a great shot from a moving bus. The lady above was taken through the front window of the bus over the drivers shoulder. We stopped to stretch our legs by this statue. Check out the snow on the mountains. The mountains here are very big and covered with snow. Tourists come here to climb these mountains. It is hard to believe that in a couple of days we will be in the sweltering jungles of Peru.
We are in Hauraz. It is surrounded by huge snow capped mountains. It is the first day of spring here. It is definitely jacket weather. Tomorrow we will do day one of the first course.
For dinner tonight I had wheat soup. It was very hearty and good. I need to see if they will give me the recipe. Perfect for our long cold winters.
