+ caballitos de totora

I had told you about "caballitos de totora" (post) , summer is beginning and this fishers ride the "caballito" with one person, who pays 5 soles (1.5 dollars) for 20 min on the sea, but sometimes they take more time... would you like to sail in a "caballito"?

Xmas Tree # 03

Bows of colors and plenty of lights... time to see friends and share some happy moments.

Parchis "Ven a mi casa esta Navidad"

When I was a child I liked listen to this song (I don't know why), it's a little sad, it's for people who spend Christmas far away home.

A sweet place...

If you want to taste traditional desserts you have to go to "Doña Carmen", an old place to eat "mazamorra morada " (a dessert which takes on the color of one of its main ingredients: purple maize) and "arroz con leche" (rice, milk, sugar, "canela"). Also, you can find "higos rellenos" (a fruit with a sweet, creamy filling made with milk and sugar), "suspiros limeños" (white and sugar)... and other sweet dishes.

If you have problems with your shoes, these can be fixed very easy, in the center of the city we found stores where shoes are fixed with the simplest and old machines of the city ... it's cheaper and the shoes are as you want.

ice on wheels

When the sun arrives, everybody go to the beach and they, the ice cream salesman do not stay in the city. On the road, we found them riding their bikes for 12 km (two ways=24 km), they take sweet and fresh ice cream for everybody... hard job?

Caballitos de Totora

Weather is changing and it's the best time to go to the beach for a moment. Everyday, many fishers from Huanchaco use "caballos de totora" for sailing and fishing, for me, it's very pleasant to see them because it's a detail of our history, this is a custom from "Moches fishers".

Here you can see "huanchaqueros" (people fom Huanchaco) of all ages using "caballitos de totora" or woving their webs. I always enjoy to come here and this is one reason to do it.

This draw was found on a "ceramic moche", this represents how old moche people fished...
