Chimbote

6 07 2007

I took an overnight bus to get here. I think that was my first mistake, no Peruvian city looks it’s best before siesta, and this one took until sunset. Perhaps I should have listened to The ‘Planet. Tomorrow, Trujillo. Perhaps the ever-present sea fog will be absent. Well, I can hope.

Other interesting events; another protest today, this time by teachers. Walking around, they managed to shut down the city. Also today was the first time I didn’t feel safe. Bit of a dodgy city, and very few gringos. When I finally saw another, I realised why I was getting so many looks. Not only are we pale, but we are between 0 and 3 ft taller than the locals. No wonder we stick out.
