I am stayed at the Hostel Colonial just around the corner from the Plaza de Armas which is really beautiful. Here is my view from sitting on my bed. I was hoping those bells did not ring all night. I stayed here two days, and then went to the beach area---about 15 minutes away by bus---called Huanchaco.
Here is a view from my of my hammock and ocean from the Frogs Surf Hostel. They wanted 80 pesos for the double room since none of the dorms or private rooms were available. I told Victor I would take the room for 40 which would be better than not renting, and we settled on 45 per night or about $14USD. The place is very new and clean. The wifi works---mostly.
This will be a nice place to hang out for two days before I take the night bus down to Lima.
Once I got here I realized that the Amazing Race filmed a recent segment here with the contestants rowing through the surf in these reed boats the fishermen us by straddling them. It was very difficult for the contestants. I am not even thinking of trying these boats.
A fisherman's big fish catch.
Church and cemetary above Huanchaco.
Fisherman building another reed boat.
Cerviche plus main course plus cola for 9 to 15 soles. Note the surfboards for rent as well. After all this is a designated Surf City by the Peru government.
Now I will heading back to Trujillo to buy my bus ticket to Lima on one of the double decker bus that will glide through the night----hopefully.
