  • From concrete sand castles to the real stuff!Huanchaco was a bit of a disappointment in my view. The beach wasn’t that nice, at least not as nice as I’d hoped.

  • Off to see Peru! Part 2[[https://www.huacachina.com/|Huacachina]] is only a few hours away and we get there in time for the sandboarding.
