After a day completely off trip planning, practising Spanish and eating, today we went up to Pastoruri Glacier, at a frosty 5000m above sea level. Due to my lack of room on the bike, I don’t actually own any pants beyond my motorbike pants or jeans, so as always I hiked in my trusty running shorts! Cue lots of locals taking pictures of the loco gringo wearing shorts and vans… I expected the walk to be harder than it was, it was really a 30 min stroll along a nicely paved path up to the face of the sadly shrinking glacier. In ten years it is projected to no longer exist due to increasing temperatures. In retrospect I could have easily ridden the motorbike up, the road was washboard gravel most of the way up, but I doubt Marine would have enjoyed the trip! We part ways tomorrow as she is staying here for more trekking whereas I really need to get moving south, heading to Huánuco. In other news my radiator is leaking again… that crash in Guatemala is the gift that keeps on giving. As I am going to visit the workshop at Around the Block in Huánuco I might pull the radiator completely out to get a better look, we’ll see how much coolant I lose in the ride tomorrow.
