Punta Sal

Peru

sunny 23 °C

Left Ecuador today and made it through the border crossing no troubles, it would have to be one of the quietest border crossings I have been too, there was a minor hiccup getting the truck through as it had been removed off their system because it hadn't been in the country for a while. Trucks have their own passports here ahich is kind of interesting, especially when you give them to the corner shop keeper at the border to process the forms for entry.

Arrived just outside of Punta Sal at our beach side camp spot for the next 2 nights, went for a swim after setting up camp which was surprisingly warm after spending many days at higher altitudes. Celebrated Halloween that night and sat around a campfire to the tunes of a violin in the moonlight.

Went for a walk next morning and was playing identify that dead animal that were washed up along the beach, saw a large seal and a turtle decomposing, the seal was being feasted on by some vultures...the circle of life :) Saw quite a number of turtle bones along the high tide mark as well which I found interesting but seems other freak out about that stuff.

Had lunch at the campsite and for entertainment a few passing whales decided to play in the water just out from the campsite jumping around with their little bub. Rest of the day was spent lounging around since this would be one of the last few days of warmth until I reach Rio in Feb.
