A visit to northern Peru- part two- Trujillo


It was very hot and dusty in Trujillo which is visited mainly for the archaeological ruins close by, though it has nice Spanish architecture and a handsome central square.

 There was something about the place that made me feel heavy and slightly depressed and I am glad I was only there for a few days. I heard later from a taxi-driver that the city is overrun by criminal gangs and extortion racketeers and drug traffickers.
