Auf nach Peru

Eigentlich wollten wir ja mal mit dem Zug fahren und laut Reisefuehrer sei das auch die bequemste art nach Peru einzureisen, aber irgendwie fuhr heute kein Zug. Auf dem internationalen Busterminal sah alles recht chaotisch aus. Wir hatten wenig Hoffnung noch rechtzeitig mit dem Bus wegzukommen um noch heute bis nach Arequipa zu kommen und so richtig lust auf Busfahren haben wir nach unserer 30 Stunden Fahrt auch nicht. Kurtzentschlossen sind wir dann mit dem Rad in Richtung Grenze losgefahren. Die erste Stadt in Peru (Tacna) ist nur ca. 60km von Arica entfernt, also eine bequeme Tagestour fuer den Einstieg.
Die Formalitaeten an der Grenze waren auch nnoch auszuhalten. Witzig war, dass wir noch eine Passagierliste fuer unsere Fahrraeder ausfuellen sollten...
Jetzt geht es nach Peru und immernoch durch die Wueste. Die letzten Kilometer haben sich dann doch noch ganz schoen in die Laenge gezogen. Nach einem Blich auf den Tacho war dann auch klar warum. Tacna liegt gut 500m hoeher als Arica, was man aber auf den endlos langen Geraden kaum sehen kann. Es liess sich eben nur schwer treten.
Am Ortseingang von Tacna hat man dann gemerkt dass man sich nun endgueltig in einem anderen Teil der Welt als Europa aufhaelt. Ploetzlich sahen wir vor uns eine Horde Menschen, welche die Strasse blockiert haben. Nachdem wir Taxifahrer gefragt haben, haben wir uns dann doch getraut vorsichtig weiter zu fahren und konnten unbehelligt vorbeifahren. Spaeter waren ueberall Strassensperren durch Steine errichtet worden um den Verkehr lahm zu legen. Wir wurden zwar von den Protestierenden freundlich durchgewunken, aber ein mulmiges Gefuehl bleibt, dass die Stimmung jeden Moment kippen koennte...
In der Stadt war dann alles ganz normal. Tacna ist eigentlich auch eine ganz huebsche Stadt. Erstaunlicher Weise sehen die Gebaeude im Schnitt eher neuer und chicker aus als in Chile. Als wir Abends eine Busticket nach Arequipa kaufen wollten, wurde uns erstmal klar gemacht, dass morgen wegen der Proteste und Strassensperren kein Bus in diese Richtung faehrt. Nun sitzen wir erstmal in Tacna fest und hoffen, dass Uebermorgen weitergeht.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I decided to find a good vendor of e-smokes. I'm done with paying so much for tobacco smokes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a variety of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented product offers convenience and exhibit performance that is unmatched.

I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?
