Huaraz, Peru

Huaraz is the main town in the Cordillera Blanca, famous for trekking and mountain sports. We came here as the base as our base to do the Santa Cruz trek. The mountains were spread out above us and sunny skies were very welcome after the mists of Lima.

Lots of local people come in from the mountains for market day, still dressed in traditional clothes.

Our hostel was very friedly and a great place to base ourselves while hanging out for my job interviews. This is the view from the rooftop terrace.

There are lots of funky cafes to hang out in and have big breakfasts, like the veranda at Cafe Andino in the photo or homey California Cafe.

I like these trolleys that you see all over, usually loaded with everything from bread to building supplies. The drivers use their feet to brake!

Tom got to try guinea pig and we also did some cooking with local funky veges, which you can see on my food blog.
