We arrived in Huánuco around five last night after several busy traveling and site seeing days. So we decided to spend two days here and rest and recuperate. This morning we went out and bought bus tickets for our trip to Lima tomorrow. We also dropped off our laundry.
While we were out we got to enjoy a mini parade promoting earthquake preparedness. There was a band, ambulances, an excavator, and lots of kids and people in costume. All the kids had on t-shirts saying that there would be a night time earthquake drill tomorrow night.
Dinner was pasta and sangria at a good Italian place. Then we went to pick up our laundry. The guy behind the counter was eager to practice his English. He asked us if we are Republicans or Democrats. Then we chatted a bit about our strong opinions about the candidates. We shook hands and said good bye. It was one of those memorable fun exchanges. It is a bit surprising to me how few Peruvians have asked us about the election.
