Apart from surfing, we've been eating some fantastic seafood, like fresh Ceviche, (that raw fish dish I was telling ye about last post) and a whole range of other meals, the most expensive of which would cost about $2, new money. Monnie, you would be under serious pressure trying to choose from the seafood menu, you'd be all day trying to decide, like myself! Are those hedges cut at home by the way?!
Hunachaco is a fishing port and is famous for its traditional fishermen who head out the sea in these reed boats designed to over come big swell, check out the style of boat in this video....
Also some more pictures of the village...
(Molly, I'll have plenty more inspiration for beach paintings when I get back from this trip I tell you!)
Its a nice quiet place to kick back, catch up on the spanish were' meant to be learning (we all got lessons in Cusco), and time to finish off some books that I'm sick of carrying around with me. It gets a bit busy at the weekends, but its really off season for the place at the moment. So I think that we'll stay here until the next big sweel hits, and then move on north again, but it will depend on how we feel about the place I guess.
