Tonight, my friend Eric and I are taking an all-night bus to the tiny fishing village of Puerto Chicama.  Chicama is home to one of the longest waves in the world, and on the right swell can produce waves stretching for over a mile.  The left-hand pointbreak normally takes a large swell to produce its world-renowned waves, but unfortunately the surf forecast is showing diminishing surf over the next few days.  The wind is also expected to be blowing fairly hard onshore, making conditions less than ideal.

Not Looking Great

In any case, I am glad to be getting out of Lima for a few days and escape the incessant jack hammering that is occurring just outside my bedroom window.  Lima is in a constant state of construction, most of which seems to be taking place next door to me.
