Our original plan was to spend three weeks backpacking around Ecuador however civil unrest forced us to change our plans and head to Peru at the last minute. At one point, I was on a domestic US flight unsure of my final destination completely, so we chose adventure and picked Lima out of a hat. Over the three weeks we accomplished the Santa Cruz multi day hike, got a taste for local roads and meandered our way into the Amazon rainforest. As always there is never enough time!
