The Adventure Begins... Chiclayo... A Biker And Brujos

From Piura I rode south and entered the desert.

There were miles and miles where it was just flat.

And there were a few areas with low lying brush.

The next town that I stopped in was the mid sized town of Chiclayo.

As I was pulling up to a hotel, another adventure motorcyclist named Kevin pulled up on his KLR650. We ended up getting a bite to eat and hanging out a bit.

I visited the Museo Tumbas Reales de Sipan. They would not allow me to take a camera inside so I don't have any photos to show you. However the museum had a nice display about the excavation of tombs of the Lord of Sipan.

I wanted to check out the local market where I had heard they had a little bit of everything.

From shoes...

To toys...

To birds...

To this...El Mercado de Brujos (Witch's Market).

It is a supply center for shamans. I struck up a conversation with one of the vendors who said that he was a shaman.

The stalls had all kinds of herbs, potions and instruments...


Powders and stones...



Animal pelts...

Voodoo dolls...

And other tools of the trade.

I actually got a little creeped out by this stuff. I don't believe that this shaman stuff has any real power over me. But, I was definitely saying my own prayers of protection. After seeing what I wanted to see I took off.

For the full story visit Chiclayo
