Na dnesok sme nemali nic naplanovane a tak sme sa aspon poriadne vyspali. Neskor sme sa dali do reci so starsim francuzkym parom ktory sa rano pristahoval a nakoniec sme sa dohodli, ze by sme si mohli zobrat spolocny taxik na Chauchilla cintorin. Vcera sme sa uz s touto navstevou v duchu rozlucili a tak sme samozrejme vrelo suhlasili. Majitel hostela sa nam najprv pokusal vnutit turu z jeho cestovky /35 solov za osobu/, ale nakoniec sa ponukol a dohodil nam svojho kamarata - taxikara /15 solov za osobu/. Opat sme sa presvedcili, ze ceny pre turistov su prehnane a staci tvrdit ze je to prilis drahe a oni vzdy vymyslia nejaku lacnejsiu alternativu. Cintorin tvorilo asi 10 jam v ktorych boli mumie, kosti, lebky, rozne zvysky keramiky, latok a kostier zvierat. Vsetky mumie boli pochovane v specifickej skrcenej polohe a vdaka suchemu podnebiu sa zachovali naozaj do detailov- bolo vidiet vlasy, kozu, vzor latok. Po okoli bolo porozhadzovane mnozstvo dalsich kosti a ulomkov keramiky. Po tejto navsteve nam este stale zostaval nejaky cas a tak sme sa vybrali do blizkeho Los Paredones - ruina kedysi vyznamneho mesta.


For today we didnt have planed anything and so we finally got proper long sleep. Later we started to chat with eldery French couple who moved in in the morning and in the end we agreed to take a shared taxi to Chauchilla necropolis. We gave up this trip yesterday so we were more than happy to find somebody. Owner of our hostel firstly tried to sell us one of his trips /35 soles per person/, but in the end he offered us his friends /taxidriver/ services for 15 soles per person, which was an agreedable price. Once again we could see, that tourists here are being overcharched and you have to haggle to get a fair price. The necropolis consisted of app 10 graves full of mummies, bones, skulls, bits of ceramics, fabrics and bones of animals. All the mummies were buried in specific position and thanks to local dry climate they were preserved well - you could still see hair, skin, fabrics patterns. In the surroudnig area we could see lots of bits of bones and ceramics. After this visit we still had plenty of time so we went to nearby Los Paredones - remains of once important city.
