Haunchaco, Chan Chan and Trujillo… a symphony of grey

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After surviving the smurf express, we arrived in Huanchaco at 1 in the morning and promptly went to sleep. The following morning we woke to find ourselves in Pleasantville – the greyest place in Peru. Our guide Diego has been coming here for the last 3 years and has only seen the sun once! That said it never rains either, just a constant state of overcast. The nearby town of Trujillo tried its hardest to brighten things up with its gaudy buildings and the temples of Chan Chan offered a hint of beige but still the greyness prevailed.
It is an interesting place – the temples and the surfing fisherman offered an insight into the Incan past and the Pisco Sour cocktails offered an insight into our drinking future, it’s just not a great place for photography – unless you specialise in black and white!
