Now, I am perfectly aware that I already wrote a travelogue entry for this date, but I was perhaps a bit hasty in sending it straight online. Besides, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of a double entry (hey, its not my fault you are thinking of something else!)Anyhow, getting back on track, after I sent the last update online, I since discovered that tomorrow (the 28th of July), is in fact Peru’s Independence Day. Both the 28th and the 29th are holidays, and as such, I stand a good chance of seeing some parades or other celebrations over the next couple of days. I did debate whether I should stay or not, and decided to wait for a sign, which came in the shape of a Peruvian midget falling out of a shop doorway and into the road in front of me. Although little people are to be feared, they do act as fates messengers, (at least to me), and so the decision was made.This regional capital of Cajamarca is probably one of the best places to see anything, and so as I am not pressed for time, hanging around for a couple more days is not going to be inconvenient. The hotel charged 5 soles extra per night for this fiesta period which isn’t outrageous, and it also means I am not cycling into small towns with no idea if rooms would be available or not over the next couple of days. Now I just hope that it is worth it!
