Holy Adobe Batman!

How much adobe could an adobechuck chuck if an adobechuck could chuck adobe?

The following day, we visited Huaca Pucllana , a site located in Miraflores. The site is a large pyramid constructed of adobe bricks. Construction of the site began at roughly 200 A.D., by the archaeological culture known as Lima. The site served as a temple and administrative center for roughly 500 years. After this time, the archaeological evidence shows influence from the Huari culture. At some point after Huari influences appeared, the site began to be used as a cemetery. All in all, I would say that the trip was fun and interesting. It was an easy walk from our hotel. It cost a little less than a dollar for admittance, and they have site tours in English and Spanish.
