Dear Family and Friends,
Before I share the photos I made while visiting Chan Chan, I am posting a link to a short National Geographic video about this ancient city. I think you will appreciate my pictures after you take a minute to watch this video.
After taking the bus back to Trujillo, we wanted to see one more site archeological site. Chan Chan.
If you watched the video above the photos I share below will make sense.
When the Spanish arrived in 1534, the city of Chan Chan was abandoned.
Chan Chan is located very near the ocean. Fishing was very important to their survival. Remember the reed fishing boats? They used these boats for fishing. These boats are still used today.
This first photo is an example of what the last King would have worn. He would be carried around on a platform balanced on shoulders of his guards.
