Lambayeque & Huanchaco

Lots of Pots

sunny 22 °C

On the drive to Huanchaco we stop in Lambayeque (whose originates from the ancient pre-Inca civilization of the Lambayeques)to visit the Lord of Sipan Museum (Museo Tumbas Reales de Sipan). The 'Lord of the Sipan’, a Moche Priest was found buried near here amidst an array of gold, jewels and fabrics. Only had 1 hr here for an express tour by the local guide (longer would have been better as there was stuff we didnt get to see) and No photos allowed and crappy gift shop as I wanted one of their pot things :( Museum had some pretty coold stuff, the archaeology of this region is a hell of a lot more interesting then that of the Romans/Egyptians/Minoans/Myceanians (sp?) (in my opinion), they have much cooler stuff and they make cool pots and necklaces...i.e. not girly ones.

Back into the truck and further driving on to Huanchaco. Oh forgot to mention the truck stopped again today unexpectedly, seems to be the running theme, but least this time it was human error, someone failed to turn on the reserve fuel tank before we left.
