From our great Inn at Tengo, we traveled by horse to the small pueblo of Levanto. I´ve got to say, i am really loving this trail riding thing. Will someone take me when i get home?? :) Please...
For the lovely price of 80 sol (20USD) we were able to get: 4 horses for the day (3 for us, 1 for my bag, lol) and a guide. The trip took 6 hours (another fine example of the peruvian inability to estimate time correctly) and was excellent for the first 4. After that, I decided to walk, i felt bad for my horsie.
The views were excellent! But the climb to the city hard... once there we found that all the cars in the town had gone to the NEXT village for a big party. No way down till tommorow. eeek. But, of course, as allways, we found a way out. :) our horse guide ran to the next village while we followed with our crazy heavy bags, and rode down with a crazy local german named anders.
4 hours later, we were in puedo ruiz agian. Then we found a great way to get to tarapoto. In the back of a truck with a matress! Sweet! The nice peruvian said it would take 4 hours. Oh ya? you learned to estimate time eh? no. It took 10. We arrived here, in tarapoto at 5 am. I am tired.
Time to sleep, and think of more stories to tell.
Miss you all. Try to figure out the stories behind the pictures, and please post comments! I really love the feedback.
