We arrived in this dry area of Peru with our plan to drive from the port and spend a few hours in the old center of Trujillo, the country's 2nd largest city.
It is a Saturday morning and by 9am people are waking up - and this guy needed to patch-up his bicycle seat before continuing on his way.
Street commerce is vibrant - need a hat or an umbrella? That sun is hot!
In other visits to this port we have toured excavations of pyramids and cities of the Mochica and Chan Chan civilizations. Today, we wanted to meet the people of the 21st century. A good place for that, the Mercado Central. Fresh chicken, anyone?
Meat cut to order
Late breakfast for the florists
As we walked along the Paseo Pizarro we saw an open-air dance studio.
This beautiful hacienda is now home to Club Central.
