Take a rest .....
„Some days are better, some days are worse. Look for the blessing instead of the curse. Be positive, stay strong, and get enough rest. You can‘t do it all, but you can do your best.“ 💪

Stunning sunrise on the last commute of the week 🌇
We are closing a very windy work week that I decided to take with my Specialized bike - I know the Giant would have been faster but I still feel more confident with the old one, a confidence that comes handy in strong cross winds.
Going out and climbing these 200m every day in headwind proved to be a tiring but very educational exercise. I've only spent £6 on public transport this month and I went to bed every day with the smug thought that YES you can stick to a good habit even despite the challenging circumstances 🙂

Pachamanca

At the end of our trip our guide, Marcos, and his father made us Pachamanca. They built an igloo shaped pile of stones and made a very hot fire inside, heating up the rocks. When the rocks were starting to glow red, they put out the fire and laid out pieces of freshly butchered lamb and potatoes and covered them with hot stones. Cardboard was placed on top of the hot stones and then the whole pile was covered with a tarp and then covered with dirt. The lamb and potatoes cooked for an hour with the moisture trapped under the tarp. A special marinade is used on the lamb, hence the green looking meat. Yum! 🐑🥔

Azerola Yareta

This is the most bizzare plant. It it made up of thousands of tiny, overlapping plays with a pine needles consistency/texture. The result is a very hard mat, hard enough to withstand hundreds on trekkers walking across it.

Per Wikipedia, yareta grows between 10,000' and 17,000’. Many yaretas are estimated to be over 3000 years old. So cool.

Cordillera Huayhuash

We just got back from an 8 day guided trek through the Cordillera Huayhuash. It was a nice change to be a client rather than a guide. We both felt a little guilty at first leaving our tent to be taken down and put back up by others and having meals cooked and dishes washed for us, but we soon got over all that. Getting back on our bikes and having to make do without a cook tent or dining tent and having to do our own cooking and dishes will be a little rough.

We'll be posting photos from the trip in no particular order over the next few days. We're in Huaraz for another couple of days and then we head north, trying to stay ahead of the rainy season.

Work Pause

Kyle went back to Alaska for a couple weeks of work with his old team. Jen stayed behind in Peru and sought local employment. 😂 We're reuniting in Lima on Friday and then we're off to the Cordilleras Blanca and Huayhuash. Expect some big, burly mountains in your feed soon! 🗻

We rode in to Cusco a couple of days ago and are now spending a pretty laid back week being tourists in the Sacred Valley and admiring the pre-Colombian civil works. While the classic Incan stonework is amazing, I think I am most in awe by the terracing that was built. These 'retaining walls' have lasted centuries and many of the terraces are still in use today. .

Illegal Gold Mining.

We took some creative public transport and ended up on a river's version of a public bus. We passed by dozens of illegal Mom and Pop gold mining operations using home made suction dredges similar to the second photo. In some cases, entire families lived on the dredges and helped with the operation.

The government appears to turn a blind eye to the endeavors so long as they are not near areas easily accessible to the public. We took the first photo from the steps of the jungle lodge we spent a night in. This is near a reserve and in a very visible location. Peruvian Marines came in and blew up these two dredges while we watched. The miners fled the dredges when the Marines arrived and nobody was hurt.

Puerto Maldonado Perú

by @adventure_ists

---HIGHLAND BAIL--- It's been unseasonably cold and snowy up high in Southern Peru. We looked at our remaining route to Cusco, which had several nights over 15,500' and we decided to drop down into the Amazon Basin instead.
We're riding the relatively new Inter-Oceanic Highway which cuts through the Amazon all the way to the Atlantic. The first two days have been amazing; we dropped from 14,500' down to 1500' and spent the afternoon at a hot springs. We're heading to Peurto Maldonado, which until 2011 was only accessible by air or by river. From there we hope to get out to a jungle lodge to try to see some monkeys. .

A selection of photos from the last couple of days. Continued high passes and cold nights and mornings. More alpacas than you can shake a stick at, and today we saw our first vicuñas (wild, delicate looking cousin of the alpaca.) With the terraces and the animals, it sometimes feels like we are in a Peruvian themed Disney movie.

FYI, we may not have cell coverage for the next 3-5 days.
