More from the Huancalavica to Trujillo trip

We got up at 4 am so we could be on the road by 5:30. Big problem was the tiny opening from the parking lot and the cars in the way. No problem, just move them.

Some of the locals got up as early as we did. Most of the people here wear traditional clothing. It is very cold and they wear clothes with a purpose. All the women carry everything on their backs including babies and children.

We passed by many little villages on the way. They live like in medieval times. I had to take two meclazines to make this trip. Very mountainous driving.

Here are some more people just getting up and walking to town.

Nobody has a car. They carry everything or put it on the back of a donkey or horse.

Everyone walks along the side of the road. We were scared for all the young children and animals.

This is Dr. Joo teaching Newborn Resuscitation. He and his wife are the Humanitarian Missionaries for Peru and Bolivia. We have had many great trips with them.
