\Highway 26 goes from Nazca to Cusco, Peru and is a very beautiful drive thru frontier type landscapes. It is the first time that I have seen wild cows, horses, and llamas. The llamas are scattered everywhere. Coming around a blind corner in the mountains all of a sudden there was a llama right in the middle of the road. I missed him by about 2 ft. Even know I am not religious I quickly had to say a prayer and force myself to slow down in these great mountain turns.
A consequence of my wipe out is that my horn no longer works, so to warn animals on the road I now have to open my visor and yell ¨Hey, Hey, Hey¨ at the top of my lungs like a crazy person. My riding buddy Mike must think that I am going crazy.
