On my last day in Huanchaco, Peru I decided to take my typical sunset stroll around town to snap some picks and enjoy the cool evening breeze. There was a small church that sat back above the city, so I cruised up to get a better view of the ocean below.
I was walking around the beautiful old Spanish-style church when a voice from above yelled down (in Spanish) “Hey, would you like to come up here”? At first I thought oh man not yet, but when I looked up there was an old man with his head poking out the church bell tower waving me to climb the stairs and join him for a better view.
I looked around to confirm he was talking to me and then I shot up the small, dark stairwell with excitement.
We talked about life in the US and Peru as he rang the bell and I watched the sunset.
It was one of those little unexpected surprises that make me stop and appreciate my life and this world.
Enjoy the photos, enjoy the weekend!
