Laguna 69 & Santa Cruz
Together with Kate (I met again here in Huaraz), Jesse and Neil from the US we left to a 4 night, 5 day hike combining the popular treks of Laguna 69 and Santa Cruz. Between those two hikes we had a 30km gap to pass, unluckily the last collectivo going in the evening was already completely full and the next morning we waited hours without one passing. An old, big truck took us and a Chilean guy for free in the back: The longest and bumpiest hitchhike ride in a back of a truck I had so far! Going up and down the small, windy gravel road for hours it was probably better to not be able to see anything but the sky.
