Chiclayo




Chiclayo

Since we've been here in Peru, I've jsut wanted to get in the car and go for a rice to see what's out there.  When we got home from the temple last night and were talking about where we would go to church today, Wayne said Predisent Casos and Miguel were going to Chiclayo.  My response was,  "OH, I want to go there sometime."  Wayne's response was, " Can you be ready by 4:15 in the morning, we are going to go with them."   I've wanted to go to Chiclayo, Chimbote, and Cajamarca just to see a different part of Peru.  I know we won't be seeing Cajamarca because the altitude would make me sick and am glad to have the pictures from the Ripples that I posted.   I was very glad we got to go to Chiclayo!!

Wayne and I went with President Casos at 4:15 am and went to pick up Miguel.  Miguel drove and we were on the road by about 4:45 am.  It was dark so I really couldn't see much, but I was just happy to be going for a ride.  Wayne, President Casos and Miguel visited, I listened and looked out the window, enjoying what I could see.  

At about 6:00 am it started to get light.  


















Pacasmayo Cement Plant


















While President Casos was in his meetings, Miguel drove around Chiclayo.  I was surprised at how much it felt like Trujillo.  These pictures were taken as we drove around the streets.

After we had seen enough of the city, we went back to the church and relaxed in the institute area while Miguel took a little siesta.  The next two pictures of looking out the back of the chapel and institute.




We ate lunch at this restaurant before heading back home.
