warm temperatures, garúa, and the world cup

Huanchaco is a lovely, tranquil little beach town outside of Trujillo, where the last 6 days have flown by.  We were warned off this town for a number of reasons (dangerous, boring, bad beach, etc.), but mostly those have come up short and we found exactly what we were looking for.  Our hostel is super relaxed, the town has every necessity, and the days and nights are a comfortable temperature.  If only our visa wasn’t running out…

Caballitos (little horses) line the beach; these fishing boats were taken out in the early morning and are left to dry for the rest of the day.

The sun doesn’t shine much this time of year due to the Humboldt Current, which keeps the sea temperature cold and creates a cloudy layer (or garúa) most days.  Since the World Cup is on this might not be such a bad thing.  I’ve been indulging my favorite vice, and watching as much fútbol as possible.
