Now THIS is vacation. I took a taxi to Huanchaco, a little beach
town outside of Trujillo. There were plenty of locals and foreigners
alike here, soaking up the sun and feasting on fresh seafood. I
checked into a beach-front hostel full of backpackers, and immediately
some friends. There are ups and downs to traveling alone, but I
generally found myself a lot happier when I had some people to talk to and
explore with than when I was completely on my own.
