OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!
We are half way through our, trip that is so crazy to think that is actually true.
We have been through Ecuador and now we are in Perú.
So far in Peru we have been to Lima and Huanchaco and now we are in the Sacred Valley for a bit.
I will tell you my opinion about Lima.
There are pros and cons about Lima; my opinion is that I personally would not go back to Lima because it is expensive, big and noisy. But there are still pros about Lima, like it is really fun at the beach to play, there are lots of restaurants to eat at and it is a safe place in some parts of the city.
We stayed in a neighbourhood called Miraflores. Mirflores is a big neighbourhood. Okay enough about Lima let’s talk about the beach town called… HUANCHACO!!!!
Huanchaco is a small beach town near Trujillo. The pope also known as the “papa” (en Español) is going on a South American trip to various countries this month. What I do know is that the pope is going to Lima and Huanchaco. That is why the construction workers are building a stage for the pope and there are signs everywhere for him. There is supposed to be something like in and around 1,000,000 people coming to Huanchaco to see the pope/Papa. I know, that’s a lot of people!!!!!!!!!!
Our house was called “La casa naranja” which means the orange house because our house was orange. Almost every day we went to the beach. The water was really cold and there were lots of rocks because there was a flood that apparently damaged Trujillo more than Huanchaco.
Near Huanchaco there is a mall that is an outdoor mall. And in that mall there is a store named Tottus and that is where we got our boogie boards.
The first day it was more of a play day because our family did not know what to expect, if the water was going to be cold or rocky. That is why we did not bother to go look and shop to see if there were water shoes available. The next day we decided to get everything done, buying watershoes, groceries etc. so that we could play and boogie board the rest of the time.
When jasper and I were running on the beach I felt so happy and grateful to be at the beach.
I was so happy when I rode my first wave because I had never ridden one before.
El agua en Huanchaco es muy frio y hay muchas rocas en el frente de la playa. Porque hace 3 años, hubo un inundación en Huanchaco pero dañó Trujillo muchísima mas que Huanchaco. Pero ahora no hay nada dañó. Aunque hay muchas rocas en el frente no hay problema porque compramos zapatos para el agua, y tenemos “BODY BOARDS”. Los “BODY BOARDS” son muy divertidos cuando estoy en las olas.
En general mi experiencia en Huanchaco fue buena.
