Tried to lie in today but couldnt due to church bells and traffic. Dave and I headed around this lovely city with lots of white buildings many with wooden balconies and tiled rooves (sp?). Is a big place with some nice plazas and churches too. We wandered and managed to put some laundry in, get a new guide book for Peru, went to the market which was fab with some great looking veg and fruit and loads of cheese and other local produce. More great photos!
Then after seeing more of the market and town we headed to Plan Internationalīs office
After that we continued to wander and then arranged for a taxi to take us to the nearby archaeological site to see dino footprints. The taxi pulled up by a cement factory and no sign of any dinos but after a walk up hill we found a very new and glam dino park with good models of dinos and a lifesize one too. Then there was a viewing platform to see the dino footprints apparently the largest site of them anywhere with hundreds of varieties. Apparently they were discovered about 8 years ago when they were digging. We were a bit disappointed that you couldnt get reallyclose to them and to me (forever the cynic) they looked a bit like a human or dog footprints but I am sure they are real really!
Later on we wandered the bustling streets and markets for a nice dinner again and finished the evening all playing cards and drinking rum and cokes.
