The Transit Stage


We just completed a two day run from our last stop, Ollantaytambo, Peru, to what we hope is our last obligatory tourist activity in Peru, Nazca, home of the famous Nazca lines.
On our trip here we covered 695 kilometers / 431.8 miles on what, in Rally-Speak, was nothing more than a transit stage, ground covered merely to move from one interesting section to another.
On a map, the distance doesn’t look all that long and I’ve got plenty of friends who ride that far before breakfast on a street bike.

But, then again, we’re in Peru. And here, even relatively short distances can be interesting.
