I was thrilled to travel to Cajamarca. Not just because I’ve read about it so much in my lovely book, 1491, but also because it produces the best diary products (ice cream, cheese, yoghurt etc.) in the North.
There are some pretty cool and important ancient ruins around Huanchaco. One of the coolest ruins and the biggest ancient city in South America is Chan Chan. The second site we visited was the Huacas del Sol y de la Luna.
With 1491, every journey is just delightful. If someone is into South-American history, in particular Pre-Columbian history of the continent, this book is a must.
