Thanks to Jon Schatzky, Colegio Roosevelt has three four-day weekends this semester. The first one is coming to a close, but while it lasted we took advantage of every minute. We fled school at 3:45 on Friday after a very predictable Senior win at ICC (www.amersol.edu.pe for more), and headed out on the road. Our plan – drive for 3 hours, spend the night in Barranca and then wake up the next morning and drive the remaining way to Trujillo (really the beach resort next to it called Huanchaco.) Everything was great – except for the Barranca to Trujillo leg ended up taking us 5 hours.
While in Trujillo/Huanchaco we saw ruins from the Chimu and Moche cultures. We saw colonial architecture. We saw a lot of desert. The trip was great, but now we need another vacation to relax. Riley was fabulous. We found out 3 hours into the trip after several enormous throw ups that she gets car sick and cannot hold down any food. Luckily we had plenty of formula and that stayed down much better.
Here are the photos. Enjoy.
