Cementerio Viejo

William Walker's Grave
Originally uploaded by StormyPetrel
Hey folks, once again sorry for the lack of updates. I had a visit from a San Francisco friend this past weekend. I took him around town, and we explored the Cementerio Viejo (old cemetary) which has recently been fixed up. It's full of graves and tombs of prominent Trujillans from the 1800s and early 1900s. Including the grave of William Walker, who was executed by firing squad at the Fortaleza for trying to invade Honduras.

Click through the picture to see a few other pictures I snapped.
