If you take a man who doesn’t believe in asking for directions and put him in a van in South America with a woman who has to pee every 20 minutes, you have the perfect storm for domestic disputes. Trust me. I know.
Typically there are no signs in Central and South America. No street signs. No highway signs. No signs for the nearest bathroom.
But every once in a while the “powers that be” mock us. They will actually put two IDENTICAL signs ten feet apart as if to say, “Here you go gringo, here is your damn road sign, now stop whining”!
I’m dead serious. You can’t make this shit up.
With that fantastic signage we had no problem finding Cajamarca. We checked into a great hotel right on the central plaza for $10 a night.
The landscape definitely changes when you go from the beach to the mountains in Peru. It becomes very indigenous very fast.
I think we’ll hang here in Cajamarca for 3 or 4 days. There is a lot to see here.
