|The number and size of the archeological sites aroung Trujillo is mind-blowing! We were lucky, and bargained our way to seeing as much as we could in a day and a half for very few Soles, including... Arco Iris (Chimu temple with lots of rainbows on the walls - hence the name); Chan Chan (HUGE Chimu city complex, made entirely of adobe, with ten walled citadels which housed ceremonial rooms, burial chambers, temples, reservoirs and some residences - it's really amazing!); Huaca del Sol and Huaca de la Luna (two Moche temples: Huaca del Sol was largely destroyed by the Spanish and by grave robbers, but Huaca de la Luna was incredible - the Moche are an older culture than the Chimu, and these temples are about 1500 years old, yet there are amazingly well-preserved painted murals); the seaside town of Huanchaco with its 'reed horse' fishing boats, a modern sculptor producing Moche-like ceramics, who taught Tara to play a strombus (conch) shell (Da couldn't do it, he he!!); and finally the Peruvian Paso horses - the horse & dancer display was beautiful, but the best bit (for Tara at least!) was having the chance to ride a Paso horse - not as easy as it looks if you're used to riding UK style!!.
