Unexpected delays

We’re on our way to Chachapoyas via Celendín, and due to a distinct lack of good connecting options we’ll be spending the night in Celendín. So here we are, spending a few minutes scouring the internet for ideas on what to do…. It seems nice so far; the cathedral is a nice cheery shade of blue, and the Plaza de Armas is bright and welcoming.

The countryside is amazing–one of the factors that made us want to take this route rather than the shorter, less bumpy (read: paved) route through Bagua Grande was that everyone kept gushing about the views. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s segment, where we descend into the Rio Marañón valley. Keep your eyes open for a post on the strangeness of being a child of the untamed American West here where every inch of land has been under cultivation for millennium.

And, of course, we’ll keep you all informed about what we find to do here!
