Well Mike was lucky enough to get another day of blog writing.
On Friday morning we got up and prepared to leave our hotel. This might be a surprise to some, but when we travel, we have a tendency to travel with more bags than we need. We are currently traveling with ten suitcases (which has required additional fees at the airport but that is a whole other topic). We brought eight suitcases from Utah with plans on leaving some for the members here. Well Kaylee had three when we picked her up. She gave one to a member, and we actually got rid of three that we brought from Utah, so we found us down to seven suitcases (yipee!).
After we dropped the bags off, we headed off to the Mosiac wall and the Plaza de Armas. The Mosiac Wall is a wall that surrounds one of the universities in Trujillo. A professor had started a project by making an illustration one one of the walls in mosiac tiles. The project was such as success that the university has commissioned him to create the history of Peru around the whole perimeter of the university. From here we made our way to the plaza, which is a famous square in Trujillo. From here we walked to the mission office to pick up some last minute things they had for Kaylee.

After lunch we made our way to the airport with all of our bags on our way back to Lima. A short flight of about 40 minutes we touched down in Lima. The hotel that we were planning on staying in had a bus there to pick us up and bring us to Miraflores. This is a beautiful location just off the coast, up on a bluff that looks down on the surf.
We met one of Kaylee's old companions and had dinner at Chili's in an outdoor mall across from the JW Marriott. This same companion is going to watch some of our suitcases while we make our way to Cusco tomorrow. We will be back in Lima on Tuesday, one day before we fly on.
