So many roads that would have been fun with the X or the KLR. The cities were terrifying to drive in though. Even crossing the street at a crosswalk you take your life into your own hands. Saw a couple of Navaro's and a ton of Hilux's. We hired a driver for two days who took us around in his Kia Sorento. Took us on this backroad:

Nothing as extreme as the death road but there were a couple of sections that were nerve racking. Glad to be back to North America's toilets though.

Fantastic Pics. If you go back to see Machu Pichu you won't be disappointed. I had seen a million pictures of it before I went, but I was still amazed when I got there. If you find a good guide who can give you a really good description of its history, and how it was built, you will be blown away by the technological sophistication of the Incas. Their knowledge of astronomy is mind boggling. Anyway, thanks for sharing those great pics.

There was some even more sketchy roads. Our one guide said he had never been on Bolivia's death road but had heard tons of stories. Back 20 or 30 years ago Perus roads were apparently that bad. Hopefully this works... I cant figure out how to embed it, heres a vid from us heading to a hot springs outside Santa Teresa and the van that took 16 of us there!
