"Pyramids of Mud??" Sipán by jakesanderson
Sipán Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 2 photos
The Sipan ruins (from whence came the Lord of Sipan, whose remains can be found in the museum in neighboring Lambayeque) are a bunch of mud pyramids that, because of the arid climate in northern coastal Peru, have not washed away totally yet. You can get a tour (in Spanish), and walk to the top of some of the pyramids, as well as check out the museum with recreations of the settlement.
Also, there may be someone on hand to sell you a taste of chicha(corn beer) and let you pet their hairless dog (Chinese?). They claim that there was an indigenous dog breed there that was voiceless, but is no extinct.
Interesting way to spend a day, when combined with a visit to the Bruning Archaeological museum (or whatever has taken its place in Lambayeque).
