Sleeping in Hilux’s

So for the last two nights in a bid to keep an eye out for our gear (in the back of the trucks), I have been sleeping in one of the Hilux’s (Andy also did the same for the first night).

Last night I was woken to a crowd moving through the streets yelling and shouting slogans. Considering the state of emergency has been lifted last week, and all of the “Conga no va” graffiti everywhere, this is adding a new element of cave recci for me. The funny thing is the vehicles we are using are the types used by mining companies.

On a separate funny note Guillaume and I had some funny looks when we were trying to buy a pressure cooker, white gas, and a machete. Apparently we looked the part?

This morning while shopping we witnessed two peaceful demonstrations, a sign of things to expect we plan on being careful.
