After joining up with Ruthie in Cuzco, we decided to hitch hike north towards Ayacucho, and had barely spent 10 minutes on the side of the road near Abancay before a friendly accountant picked us up in a dazzling red sportscar and proceeded to drive up and down hair pin turns on small dusty two track dirt roads at speeds I wouldn't have thought possible. He ended up taking us on an 8 hours drive to Andahuaylas, including a stop for the night in the small village, Huamaraca where his parents live and a half day hike up to a cloud forrest on the border to the amazon jungle. The photos below are fragments from the first part of our journey from Abancay to Huamaraca, cloud forrest included.
