After riding back north from Huaraz we head east again at the town of Yungay. In 1970 an earthquake caused an avalanche which destroyed the town killing 20,000 people. Only 92 people on higher ground survived. All the buildings are newer than 1970
Huh? It goes straight in. That’s disappointing
The ride looks like it could go on forever, but it’s been a rough ride up and it’s 60 miles back to Huaraz. A friend asked me the other day if I remembered how rough the ride was up to Montevideo was in Costa Rica – I remember well.
Peru is turning out pretty well.
