Salaverry – Trujillo, Peru
As the captain said as we got off the ship "welcome to the moon". The landscape here in Salaverry, Peru is barren and dusty with nothing but rocks and sand.
Our tour guides arrived on schedule in two 24-seater buses and we headed to Trujillo City, which is in the northwest area of Peru. It's the 2nd biggest city in the country with populations of just over 2 million people. A ...

We checked out the place we were going named Naylamp. After we learned our way around, we went to a market. We bought mango smoothies, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.
