Whats that smell
20.01.2007 - 22.01.2007
After a few days in Lima we decided to move on and so headed South to this place on the coast, thinking it´d be some stunning beach resort. Instead it turned out to be one giant slum with a park in the centre.
The hostal was funny ´Gran Hostel Belen´, actually came with its own bed pan, which my Chris though was for stewing.
The one good thing was the Guano islands, but my God did they stink. They´re these islands a couple of miles off the coats which are a wildlife haven and are periodically mined for guano, i.e. bird shit.
After that we were treated a drive though the desert in a mini-bus courtesy of its own bullet holes. Went to the coast, my god it was beautiful, all you could see was sand and blue ocean, the below picture should show it.
Ended up swimming in the Pacific, got stung my urchens, Claire ended up taking a knife to them, which was fun. Got them checked out Mum and they´re fine now.
