North Coast - Archeology, Dust and Seafood

Like all the guidebooks tell me to write, "the North of Peru is often called the Egypt of Peru." Well, we have (a) lots of sand (b) no rain and (c) pyramids and mummies. Okay, close enough. There were incredible cities of mud and brilliantly preserved tombs. Plus friendly locals and tasty seafood on the cheap. It could have been warmer, but the entire Peruvian coast is pretty much grey, cloudy and surprisingly cold, thanks to the ocean current flowing along its length. With comrade travelers Pedro and Rebecca, I began a march that would run us up the coast, over the Peruvian highlands, and (for me) down into the steamy Amazon basin.
