In Lima Peru

Lima is a huge city with a population of about 9 million.
It is noisy, busy and the traffic is incredible.
The Peruvians insist that Pisco (a highly alcoholic drink derived from grapes) is their invention, but the Chileans do too. Chile certainly does the best job of marketing it. The Peruvians won't allow Pisco made anywhere else into Peru - you even have to sign a customs declaration to say you don't have any. A Pisco sour is a great drink, and we've already had quite a few.
We have visited the Plaza Mayor, many churches, the anthropological museum and the modern area of Miraflores.
We've seen artifacts from many of the cultures dating back to thousands of years BC. The Inkan empire is the youngest.
