Today we are on a private tour to Trujillo and its surrounding districts. Firstly the Huacas Museum, then the Temple Ruins of the Moon and Sun. This archaeological site was the capital of the Mochica culture from century 1 AC until the ninth century. We then moved on to the Plaza de Armas in the centre of Trujillo. Beautiful Spanish Colonial buildings surround the Plaza. Churches, old Mansions restored and beautifully painted. We enjoyed a nice stroll around the Plaza looking at all the beautiful architecture and taking many photos. Next a seafood lunch at Huanchaco Beach, in Trujillo's resort area and a visit to see the famous reed boats
A wonderful busy day. Tomorrow is a sea day, a chance to rest and ready ourselves for the next port, Manta Equador.
