Bus Ride Back to Lima
None of the videos I recorded did justice to the crazy driving/drivers of Peru. Though these videos seem tame, our car/bus rides were the scariest part of our trip. Traffic laws are more like guidelines... There's lots of honking, cutting people off/passing people on winding mountain roads, and even creating your own lane when need be.

Night Bus Ride to Huaraz
This is a short clip of our hellish bus ride to Huaraz. We had to take the night bus due to the transportation strike. They played obnoxious music for at least an hour. Then they played a bootleg copy of Star Trek for our viewing pleasure. After that, I thankfully fell asleep so I'm not sure what other torture passengers were subjected to. We got on the bus around 10 PM (if I'm not mistaken). The bus ride was approximately 8 hours long.

Our donkeys are passing us
Every day during our trek, our donkeys would pass us. This video shows them fast approaching. It ALSO proves that we were not the only people panting like asthmatic fat kids on the trail!

Finished trekking, riding back to Huaraz
This is a glimpse of the often terrifying ride back to Huaraz. Very steep, very rough, very winding. If you listen closely, you can hear our guide telling us that we will see lots of crosses as we navigate down the mountain. These crosses, like in the US, signify that a fatal accident occurred at the site.
