Tambopacaya Backpackers Hostel in Lima:
Ran into this lil’ gem whilst searching for a friendly spot to stash the bike while taking a side trip to Easter Island. Run by the impish Limeño se llama Scott, Tambopacaya has been laid back, quiet, and clean. It’s in a decent part of Lima that is not really too close to anything but anything you might want to see is a ten minute bus ride away. Scott has a pet monkey on the roof which always has a boner, and a weird boner it is because it’s shaped like a nail, or clavo en castellano. It creeps me out. Pero no pasa nada. Pass the time practicing your castellano with Scott as he regals you with stories of his new project, a hostal near the site of the ancient pyramids of Caral. A work in progress, Scott hopes to have it up and running very soon. Check it out here: CaralTambo Eco-Camping.
Camping Tipanie Moana – Easter Island:
There are not a lot of cheap places to stay on Easter Island. There aren’t really any hostels or anything like that. The cheapest option is to camp and Tipanie Moana costs 4500 Chilean Pesos per night if you have your own tent, 5500 if you need to rent one; about $9 and $11 respectively. This is pretty good on an island where a hot dog costs $8, although it was a good hot dog and came on a little plastic stand. Owner Benjamin is friendly and helpful, so much so that I continuously eyed him with an air of suspicion; but all for not and everything was always on the up and up at Tipanie Moana. Hot-water, a nice shared kitchen, wi-fi, airport pickup and delivery, and free Bill Cosby-like horsey rides on Benjamin’s knees for campers round out the amenities.
Mike’s Motorcycle Madness:
Journey into the depths of madness with motorcycle miscreant Michael. Nah, Mike’s a cool dude alright, coming from the states on a KLR250 solo, and thumping along to the beat of his own cylinder.
The Greatest Danes:
Motorcycle adventuristas, lil’ Lars and the realest girl Henrietta were encountered at a campground up in the Yukon. Henrietta actually rode her own bike, something that is rarely seen and to be commended in the utmost. Slaves to ritual, each would partake in a licorice pipe after border crossings, or which there were many on their epic voyage. Check em’ out!
