Mancora, Peru 18/09/11
We had booked a bus to Piura in Peru, but as another group of guided tourists seem to be getting off in a place called Mancora, a surfers paradise, and I wasn’t feeling great, we decided to get off early by a few hours. Out of the middle of the desert you arrive in this tourist centre with hostel, bars, surf shops and tourist tat. For the entire trip from Ecuador all there was, was endless desert followed by fish farms and sugar cane fields, and then back to more desert. The surf looked good here but the water not that warm, we were out of season for surfing and kite surfing, but there were still a few to watch as the sun went down.
