Huánuco to Lima – Thursday, October 13, 2016

Today we spent almost eleven hours on a bus going from Huánuco to Lima. Altitudes again – Huánuco is at around 6,000 ft. We went up to over 14,000 feet and the down to sea level at Lima.  We caught the bus in Huánuco at 8:30 this morning. The big seats downstairs were already booked when we bought our tickets so we were upstairs. The seats look like they have a lot of leg room until the seat in front of you reclines into your lap! It was a tiring day. I listened to almost all of season two of the podcast Serial. 

The scenery was stunning and interesting. 

Traffic in Lima was horrible but we finally got to our hotel around 8 tonight.   Boy did the hamburgers and beer for dinner taste good.
