supplies for the long drive, hehe
After a good flight, we arrived to Piura around 5:20pm. The flight wasn't long at all and it was so fun since we had some music and were just laughing and making fun of the videos they were playing on the screen, hehehe. I was a bit afraid that somebody would start complaining any second, but it never happened, hehehe. Just the guy who was sit next to me was looking strange at me...

Piura's aiport is small and it didn't take us long to claim for the surfboard. Next step was going from Piura to Mancora, which is about 3:30 hours by bus. I was fine about taking a cab to the bus station and catch a bus, but my friend was concerned about the surfboard and preferred to take a cab. Really? that's expensive... but surfboard was a baby, lol!

As everywhere in Peru, you have to bargain and so we did. The taxi driver was a nice guy, who even gave us his card to call him if we needed his services while we were in the area. After stopping for some liquid element aka beer, we kept on driving. We left Piura with day light and by the time we were getting closer to Mancora it was getting dark and darker...
