Problems in Peru - Llave
 
Mmmm - just about to set off to this region when I read this:

Also the www.fco.gov.uk site advises no travel here!

Poooooooooo

Anyone up there right now?

To answer my own question - The violence and "beheading" activities have stopped for the time being. Some kind of agreement reached in Llave.

Thanks for all the fish.

Newspapers and journalists have degraded in my opinion since I started traveling...

I crossed about 25 roadblocks getting from Bolivia to Peru... and the worst what happened was I had to help at one roadblock to "earn" my passage.... So I shoveled for about 5 minutes and became the hero of the day.

I made it through most of them just by smiling and sharing some coca-leave,s...

It,s all a load of.... ehhhh...

There have been problems on the bolivian side for some time as well. If things get really bad you couls team up with other people and charter a small boat around the trouble. Make sure you stop for the border crossing though.

You are right MMarten, the more I traveled around latin america, the more I realised that its as easy as riding around home, I loved it there and the papers all blew the whole thing out of proportion.
