Huanchaco was the perfect place for this celebration, local fishers made one big "caballito de totora" which was taken by some soldiers while fishers took St. Peter Statue on prossecion from the Huanchaco Church, they make this big boat just for this day, every year.

one for each one

I know, it's too much for one person, but here, we eat a lot, I think :S ...I was in Magdalena de Cao, very near to Trujillo, these days are very cold and this dish is perfect for getting warm. "Sudado de pescado" is very typical in the peruvian coast, there are many ways to cook it, in this case, it has crabs, but it always is prepared with tomatoes onions, a little of garlic, some spicy ingredients... and, of course, fresh fish ^^

Looking around...

I visited to some farmers in Laredo, I like to see the people working at the country side, it's a quiet live instead of a lot of problems for them, who work very hard all the day.

taking air...

It isn't common to see adult people in this balcony, which is part of a school... this man was quiet for along time, maybe remembering his childhood or maybe waiting for someone.

Casa Urquiaga Calonge

Casa Urquiaga Calonge is an historic house, very important for Trujillo. Simon Bolivar was here during the Independence War, you can still finf his beautiful wood desk inside. It's a beautiful exponent of the neoclassical architecture characteristic in the middle of the 19th century. This house now is the office to the Reserve Central Bank (BCR) and to the Police.
...for Annie: I was asking why the windows are so ample and excel, between many answers of architecture I found that the windows were the place where people used to sit to the edge having observed the street, moreover, when windows excel of the house they let peolple to watch the flanks and to see who were outside. ^^

Casa del Pueblo

The "Casa del Pueblo" (People's House...something like this) is an historic house, it represents the home of a politician party, I think it's the oldest, however, its history was visited for persecution, corruption, deception... our president belongs to this politician party.

At the market

Everybody go to the market on weekend, some people go to the supermarket, where is so easy to buy, you find everything with the price, all it's perfect. Other people prefer to go to the another market (for example: Hermelinda Market) where trucks left the products recently, you can ask for few prices and find everything you want, but you must walk while some kids offer take your things.
ps: my scann is crazy today... these pics are scanned ^^
