Straightforward ride to little seaside town with a castle.
Last night the wind picked up and today forecast was higher winds. I was pleasantly surprised that they weren’t quite as strong as forecast. It was overcast all day long and hence a bit of a dreary looking day. Today the road was a four lane highway and as I near Lima, the traffic volume has increased.
Passed a toll booth where you can see the prices, 3 sol per dollar or just slightly less than $2.50 for an automobile.
One of the emergency beacon signs.
A little house along the way. Some dry areas, though also no huge stretches of desert without anything.
Several spots of construction. These guys were on other side so not a big deal, though there was a time or two we needed to watch as it got narrow.
I wonder why they felt a need to post a sign telling people not to burn tires.
Last bits into Chancay were mostly flat as I found my way into town. Found a hotel on the far edge.
The town looked deserted until I could find the shopping zone, just a block off the main street.
A little maze of market streets here.
My hotel wasn’t far from this tourist castle. It was built in 1940 and now is a tourist attraction. I bought a ticket and wandered around.
The main grounds of the castle.
The scary part. I didn’t go in here. Not because I was scared, but because it cost extra.
Good chance to practice Spanish reading.
View from one of the towers.
Now close enough to Lima that will slowly make my way into the city tomorrow.
