The Huacas... Sol and Luna

When you come to Trujillo, you have to visit some ruins.

We took the Farnsworths to the Huaca del Sol and the Huaca de la Luna
from the Moche civilization.  It is dated about 1500 years ago.

They have estimated that 130 million adobe bricks were used to build these Temples.

The large mound of dirt behind them is the Temple of the Sun
which they are just now starting to excavate.

The kids always love the bird whistles that are sold here at the ruins.
Isaac sounds just like a bird when he blows it.

Again another great morning with our visitors!
