Just outside Trujillo, Peru (which is a bit down the Pan Am from Chiclayo) is Chan Chan, which is not a stylish night club (at least in this context) but a large, Pre-Columbian Adobe complex built by the Chimor, who came around after the Moche (remember them?)
And since it was Sunday it was even free. I again skipped the non-English speaking guides to walk around on my own.
The complex is pretty huge, and impressive for basically be mud.
I was there for about two hours. Some of the displays were Bi-Lingual, which was nice.
There were a pair of travelers, a Spanish man with his Chilean girlfriend, who told me about a beach where they had camped (in their van). I went there, thinking I could get some camping in,, but it was full of fishing boats and their fisherman and I decided not to. Instead I went to a no-tell hotel, where I actually got locked in (which was different). Bed was comfy though, and I was glad I had food with me.
