The Lomas de Lachay national reserve would normally take 2 hours for the 100 km drive from Lima. Instead it took an hour just to get out of the city. And I got pulled over by the police for my first time here. He wanted to give us a $200 fine or a $40 bribe. Then just let us go after telling him we couldn't pay the bribe. After that I missed the turn for the park and got stuck in road construction for 20 more minutes before I could turn around. But the park was pretty nice except for looking kind of foggy and creepy. There was only 2 other people there after a bunch school kids left. Oh, also it was crazy foggy for part of the drive back.
Then we tried to take a short cut to avoid traffic and went through a bad area. We just kept driving faster to avoid another cop with its lights on a little ways behind us. We lost him by running through an intersection and past a dozen parked moto-taxis. .
