Two More Pictures and a Few Words
view of Piura from the plane. Let me tell you about piura. It is HOT. It is DRY. Most everywhere is sand except the nicer roads and sidewalks and whereever people water their dirt. Although it doesn't necessarily bother me a bunch, the people here are pretty poor, or so it seems. Some of the houses are nicer, but most have tin for roofs, a lot have dirt for floors, and some have straw for walls. There's a lot of bamboo here too (in construction). I didn't know they had that. It contrasts pretty sharply even from the poor places in Lima.
