Getting out of Huánuco was straight forwards, although to start with the road was not in the greatest condition. I think these last few weeks of cycling through spectacular countryside had spoiled me somewhat, as today seemed pretty average all around.
I don´t want to call Peru uninspiring, because its been spectacular… a real cyclists paradise. Just that today was a tad dull !!
The sky was hazy, the surroundings non descript, and I couldn’t get much speed up due to the uphill nature of the road. When I reached Huariaca, I headed for Hostal Rosa Nautica. It had been given a bad rap in a blog I had been reading, but I found it to be ok, and well priced at 15 soles. It even had free wifi!
