Cycling from Huánuco to Huariaca in Peru

Continuing my bicycle tour through Peru as part of my larger 18 month tour from Alaska to Argentina, on this day, I cycled from Huánuco to Huariaca in Peru.

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 nondescript, 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!
