Miro and I spent a week in Chiclayo about two years ago and loved the array of cultural offerings. As we traveled back to Lima from our third trip to Ecuador, we stopped in the magical city for about 8 hours. Miro and I shared several of our past experiences with a few fellow travelers on the bus, but realized I had never written a comprehensive guide to Chiclayo to refer them to. So, here it is:

This article is Part 2 of our series “The World Is Our Classroom: Lessons From…” where Miro and I take a closer examination at places and events on our “must see list”.

A News Worthy Art Exhibit
From a distance, Fernando Bryce‘s works look like clippings from newspapers of a bygone era.
