“Containing What Happened to Me During This Voyage, Until I Arrived at the City of Lima”

And eighteenth century Franciscan writes:

Ya que vino el día partí por dentro de una quebrada, y así fuimos hasta mediodía, y aquí, dejando la quebrada, entramos por entre dos cerros, y venimos a subir por aquel cerro de lajas de afilar que dije cuando fui a Angasmarca, cuando iba para Lima desde Guamachuco. Ya que llegamos arriba, me fui derecho a casa del cura, el cual me recibió con mucho agasajo. Se mandó llamar al Alcalde, el cual me buscó bestias y un peón hasta Guauras, que distaba de allí cuatro días.

He went from Huamachuco to Angasmarca to Huaraz to Lima on mountain paths, as I would like to do.

Axé.

  1. Perhaps the priest and the mayor will meet you there when you arrive!
