What better way to start the day than with some Spanish classes. After that, we went to UNIFÉ where we had lunch and were treated to a Peruvian history/culture class. Next, perhaps it could be said that the main event of the day was our visit to the Museo de Oro. We were lucky to have our guide from a couple of weeks ago, Fernando, again. He is very knowledgeable, but what most impresses me about him is his passion for making sure we receive the knowledge that he disseminates to us. He is constantly getting the students involved by asking engaging questions that require us to think, and you can hear the passion in his voice.
Despite being called the gold museum, we were surprised to see a wide variety of Peruvian artifacts such as mummies, tools, pottery, and fabrics. Not only that, but the upstairs section included an extremely impressive and vast collection of guns, knives, armor, and other fascinating objects from many different cultures and decades. We were certainly not disappointed by what the museum had to offer.
