Time to leave Yapatera and Explore!February 25, 2018 in Peru
The project ended 1 week ahead of schedule which meant extra travel time for me! Hooray!
First stop is Piura, a large city still recovering from massive flooding just the year before. Not my favorite place or the safest place but this city is a major bus/air hub for northern Peru.

Next stop is Trujillo and the beach town of Huanchaco. I LOVED this town. We stayed at a great hostel that had a pool and pool table. Right next to the pacific we could hear the waves.
