Off to the land of the little horsies
Kindly ignore that the picture above is a beer ad. (Or not...far be it from me to prevent you from trying Pilsen Trujillo beer.)
This evening I'm off to that spot, the beach in Huanchaco near Trujillo. Yes, tonight I shall be in a tour bus aalll night. I'm interested to see whether I'll be able to sleep on the bus. (I have no hope if they play more Sylvester Stalone movies.)
Apparently those things above are called caballitos de totora, little horse of bulrush, literally. Although clearly the meaning wasn't meant literally, cause they look more like worms than horses.
But you can see how they got there.
Trujillo also claims to be the originators of ceviche, a famous fish cooked with lemon dish in Peru. I've been ordered to eat seafood while I'm there, though I've never been the biggest fan. When in Rome....
Probably won't be updating until next Monday then, so I'll see you all later!
