Today was a rest day for us. We are in Piura near the coast in northern Peru starting week three of a nine week trip. If you would like to see our itinerary and an index of my blog posts so far you can always go to this itinerary blog post

This morning we walked to the bus station and bought tickets to take us to Chiclayo tomorrow. 

This afternoon we visited two small museums. The first was the former home of and now a museum about Peru’s most famous naval officer Admiral Miguel Grau. 

The second museum was the Museo Vicus. It contained archaeological artifacts from the Vicus culture that lived in this area about 2000 years ago. 

It was very hot and humid here again today although it did cool off in the evening when we had a great dinner at a restaurant called Don Parce.
