So we finally pulled ourselves out of Huanchaco, and headed for Lobitos, not knowing much else about the place except that it has good surf. So by hook or by crook, we got talking to a dude who knew a dude, who knew of a place to stay, because there are no hostels there. So between the jigs and the reels, we ended up staying with this born again Christian dude in his house, bit of a spacer, but he was alright, he lived a shit life of various messing, but was a new man since he found J.C, fair play to him.

So anyhow, Lobitos is a ghost town, used to be a big hub for the America oil companies who lived here, but was reclaimed by the Peruvians, and now is basically unused, and still used as a military training camp, but the pier is still used by the locals for trading with the local fishermen.

We bought this giant squid one day for the crack, and got the local fishermen to chop it up`and clean it for us, and ate 2 meals out of it, good ould crack. Ed wasnŽt feeling the best though, and nearly calfed when he saw us eating the raw calamari on the second day in a typical Peruvian dish!

We were travelling with 2 guys that we found in Huanchaco too, Clarlos, a dude from Minorca, who knew little english, but was great crack, and couldnŽt get enough of our eejiting, and Frenchie, Elo from the north of France, who decided that sheŽd take a trip to Lobitos with us. So all of us stuck together in the house, and had good crack, even though there was nothing much to do.
