Ecuador-Peru

Equador-Peru

De Salinas passamos por Guayaquil onde fomos ao aeroporto. E de la seguimos ate a cidade de Canar onde pegamos a Panamericana para o sul chegando ate a cidade de Cuenca, onde pernoitamos. Cuenca e a terceira maior cidade do Ecuador e tombada como Patrimonio Historico Internacional pela UNESCO pelo seu passado colonial da epoca do Imperio Espanhol e mantem seu charme e predios historicos como igrejas, conventos, casaroes, e tambem muita historia relacionada aos nativos canaris que habitavam a regiao antes dos Incas. Cuenca esta a 8.315 pes acima do nivel do mar e sua localizacao era ao longo da “estrada” que ligava Cusco a Quito. Muito interessante…

De Cuenca continuamos na E35 (PanAm) ate a cidade de Loja, capital da Provincia de mesmo nome, onde almocamos,  com intencao de atravessar a fornteira para o Peru neste mesmo dia na cidade de fronteira de Macara. No caminho entre Loja e Macara, um pouco antes da fronteira, fomos parados por um grupo de Policiais de Aduana para verificacao e inspecao. Todos foram muito educados e profissionais, principalmente os policiais Rodriguez e Munoz, que pediram para conhecer o motorhome (inclusive filmando…) e nos deram muitas informacoes e orientacoes.

Com o adiantado da hora, resolvemos seguir ate Macara para pernoitar e atravessar a fronteira somente no dia seguinte. Chegando em Macara descobrimos que todas as “gasolineiras” fecham as 10h da noite. Pedimos orientacao sobre onde poderiamos ficar e nos disseram que o melhor seria pernoitarmos em frente ao batalhao da policia local. La fomos nos, a procura do local, e fomos muito bem recebidos pelo Chefe do Batalhao da UPC de Macara e por la ficamos. No dia seguinte saimos do Ecuador somente carimbando a saida em nossos passaportes e entregando o dcumento de importacao do veiculo. A entrada no Peru foi um pouco mais demorada pelo sistema computadorizado que usam para o preenchimento do doc de importacao do veiculo. Mas…cruzamos para o Peru…

Ecuador-Peru English

From Salinas we went to Guayaquil where we headed to the airport. From there we went up to the town of Canar where we joined the Panamericana Highway southbound and drove all the way to the city of Cuenca, where we stayed overnight. Cuenca is the third largest city in Ecuador and it was declared Worlds Cultural Heritage Site  in 1999 by UNESCO,  due to its colonial historical past from the days of the Spanish Empire and the city maintains its charm and historical buildings such as churches, convents, nunneries, plantation houses, and also much history related to the “canaris” – the indigenous group that lived in the region before the Incas. Cuenca stands 8.315 feet above sea level and is located along the Inca “highway” which joined Cusco to Quito. Very interesting.

From Cuenca we continued on E35 (PanAm) till we reached the city of Loja, capital of the Province with the same name, where we had lunch, planning on crossing the border this same day at the border town of Macara. On our way between Loja and Macara, a little before the border, we were stopped by a Customs Police Battalion for checking and inspection. All officers were very polite and competent, especially officers Rodriguez and Munoz, who asked us to visit the RV (even filming it…)and gave us several orientation and information.

Since it was getting late we decided to get to Macara and stay overnight there to cross the border first thing the other day. Upon our arrival at Macara we were told all gas stations closed at 10 pm…We asked for orientation on where we could safely stay overnight and were told the best and safest place would be at the local police Station. And there we went looking for the place, and we were warmly welcomed by the Chief Officer of UPC Macara who, along with his men, were very friendly during our stay.  The other day we left Ecuador just having our exit stamped in our passports and surrendering the vehicle document to the Customs.  To enter Peru took a little longer due to the computer system they use to fill out the vehicle importation form. But…we managed to enter Peru…
