After leaving my hostel, I jumped on a four-hour bus to Lima, where I started my trip almost a year ago. It would be a short reunion though: I wanted to get to Trujillo by morning. One annoying thing about Peru is that unlike every other country I've been to in South America, most cities don't have a central bus terminal. Instead, each company has its own. A lot of them are near each other, but there's often an oddball company located on the other side of town. In bigger cities like Lima, some of the companies even have more than one bus station, just to confuse you more. I had to walk around awhile, but eventually I found a company that would take me to Trujillo tonight. This time there weren't even any issues with the bus breaking down. It was my lucky day.
