Searching fruits

In Poroto again... Sometimes you can find fruits on the trees, this time I saw a lot of pinneaples and ciruelas (plums). A little girl was eating some of plums while her older sister was on the tree searching the best fruit for her.

Huaca de la Luna

The "Huaca de la Luna" is an adobe brick temple built by the Moche civilization on the north coast of Peru, in Moche (a district of Trujillo). You can visit just for $4.

The huaca was decorated in registers of murals which were painted in black, bright red, sky blue, white, and yellow. The sun and weather has since faded these murals away, but other murals used in earlier phases of construction can still be seen inside the Huaca.

Mud bricks

In Moche, a district of Trujillo, some people rent farm spaces to use minerals and clay that contains and to make mud bricks called "adobes".

These two men produce 1000 bricks in one day. When they finish using the land, they will give back it to the farmer who no longer will be able to cultivate so easy because this one already lost its mineral wealth.

Roots without roots

I don't know why people cut trees... I got sad when I saw this root from an old tree, a tree was almost 400 years old, maybe it was sick, I don't know, but in I've seen many cutted trees in last days.
Trees can be save the life someday... now, they do it but we can see it all the time.
