... thus the bones all over the place. When the Spanish came through, they were only interested in gold and left everything else.

The third bit of incongruity that struck me was the fact that the ruins were next to a makeshift slum on one side and a polo pitch on the other. Seriously.

Tomorrow, a 10 hour bus journey north to Trujillo.
