  3. 3. About your guide: Guillermo Knell Guillermo grew up in the city of Lima, Peru and received his B.S. degree in Biology at Ricardo Palma University in Lima. He also finished his M.S. degree in Ecotourism at Agraria University in the same city.   On 1994, he began his experience in the tropical Rainforest. Nevertheless, he had already worked with the Conservation and Ecology Association (ECCO, Peru) on three projects that dealt with amphibians and reptiles in the dry and humid forest of the northern part of Peru. On 1995, he joined Rainforest Expeditions, a private ecotourism company which operated three eco-lodges in the southeastern part of the Amazon, the Tambopata River.   Early on, he had worked as a naturalist guide who was in charge of the night-time walks through the forest. Later, he began to work in other aspects of nature interpretation such as designing eco-touristic-activities for the company and managing logistics and coordination’s for filmmakers and their crew in the Tambopata National Reserve. These responsibilities and tasks enabled him to have the opportunity to join the BBC crew, Icon Films, Galateé Films and other important companies as a tour and expedition leader. Aside from these jobs, Guillermo spent several months involved in a project that developed educational materials to promote the conservation of the Amazonian and cloud forest fauna for the visitors. In order to remark the importance of these projects, it is significant to mention that it was supported by the Abercrombie & Kent Global Foundation.   Guillermo spend various years working as a free-lance guide with companies and tour operators conducting tourism in the Amazon. This professional experience gave him the opportunity to join many trips as a naturalist guide in explorations cruise ships to the Amazon basin, High Artic, Antarctica and West coast of South America. Along with his tourism work, Guillermo also did consulting with non-governmental organizations that worked in ecotourism projects and natural interpretation issues with native communities and riverside people in the Amazon basin.   During 2003-05, he lived in Chicago and worked in the Environmental and Conservation Programs at the Field Museum. As an International Program Field Manager in the conservation of the Amazon Basin and organized Rapid Biological Inventories in remote areas. Currently, he is still involved in several ecotourism projects that work in the Natural Interpretation area in Peru.

  5. 5. HUACA CHOTUNA  ARCHEOLOGICAL COMPLEX Located 12 kilometers west of Chiclayo, this group of truncated pyramids and buildings covers an area of approximately 20 hectares. The legend of Naymlap and the founding of the Lambayeque culture are identified with this place. The legend tells us that Naymlap himself ordered the construction of one of the temples here, identified as Chot, a place where he set an idol of green stone known as Ñam Pallec.
