Easy ride to a town that could have been named for a sneeze.
Today stayed mostly through agricultural areas and hence no long stretches of desert. People were busy harvesting in this field.
Most of the distance today had four lanes with only two in use. There would be these concrete barriers and sometimes the traffic would be directed on opposite side for a while. I cycled in closed areas once or twice, but mostly in the travel lanes. Even with only half the lanes, there was reasonable shoulder and traffic not too bad.
One of the slightly dry areas. I am skeptical that only 1.5 kilometers away and behind the chicken farms, the area is as green as suggested by the sign.
Passed through several towns, this was on of the shops.
There is a cart under there somewhere.
Not quite as reliable as the horse-drawn cart.
A fairly sophisticated separation scheme complete with sign.
Before noon I was in Huacho. Took a little looking but found a reasonable hotel. Walked downtown to Plaza Vea and then back along this monument.
Now getting closer to Lima and will start to read how others have navigated this large city. This is largest city will cross. Other cities in Peru have been surprisingly easy so hopefully this is more difficult but not abnormally so.
