Since spraining my ankle in Ecuador, I decided to cross the border into Peru the easy way... by bus. I just couldn't be bothered limping around the jungle town I would have needed to start in ... buying a hammock to sleep on the boat deck, stocking up on fresh water and food, finding a boat and determining it's real scheduled departure (I've heard delays of hours or days are common), etc. So, after departing Puyo, I retraced familiar ground through Cuenca and Loja and crossed into Peru at a small town called Macara'
After the border, I made my way to the beach community of Mancora. I need a place to let my foot rest and recover and this seems like the place to do it. It is low season right now and a little boring... but I can't do much anyway. I ran into some Israeli guys I met in Quito a couple weeks back so I hang out with them as there really isn't anyone here to meet or talk to. I'm not sure how long I can sit around like this but my options are limited. Hopefully recovery is fast...
No pix til later... I need Windows XP and only 98 is available right now.
