Callum woke up this morning with the fever I had the day before, Julia (Izzy's friend) also woke up with bronchitis, so Harold went out to the pharmacy again and got two sets of different magic pills. He seemed to know every type of pill to solve all problems. So we didn't do much in the morning, I did some writing while Callum slept.
Tonight is also our next night bus luckily Harold decided to hold 2 rooms till we left at 8pm, ours and his, which meant Callum could stay asleep longer.
When Callum woke up about 1ish he was starving, so about 10 of us went to back to 'My Friend' restaurant that we went to when we arrived in Huanchaco. I had the yummiest omelete. Then we went back to Chocolate Cafe for more cake but they had none left so I had a Banana split and Callum had chocolate fudge which he'd been eyeing up since yesterday.
In the afternoon we went to visit a pre Incan Chimu site called Chan Chan. It was very interesting, huge site made of mud bricks. We got a guide to take us around. He was very knowledgeable. The city had allsorts of different size spaces and area for different purposes. The big open spaces were for celebrations and the smallers spaces were for smaller functions. The smaller the rooms the more important the people. Then centre of the city was the tomb of the King. Next to him were the graves of 42 of his parliament etc. as he needed them to rule the afterlife (which was their beliefs). So, went the king died everyone was sacrificed also. The Money the King had over his time was not left behind for the new king either, they believed that he also required this to rule the afterlife and that the new king had to find new lands to rule over in order to bring in new income.
After our trip to Chan Chan we went back to the city for a little dinner before catching the night bus. The bus was meant to have full meal for us however we just got given a small roll with a piece of ham and cheese (not very nice) and a juice. Apparently that was the kids menu and not what we were supposed to get. Luckily we ate first and got some snacks.
