Some decades ago I stayed a week in the Andean village of Huandoval in the province of Ancash, Peru.
It’s a small isolated place with no electricity and no telephone. You have to rely on shortwave radio for communication. In periods you can´t reach or leave the area because the road collapses in the rain!
A fantastic horseback ride excursion in the mountains with the shopkeeper of the village is a strong memory from that week!
