For all Lima is a massive city of 10+ million people. To pick up the blog enjoy some photo’s of the old city centre, the cosy area of Barranco, the ghetto for rich people Miraflores and Callao which is basically built between the airport and the seaport.

Pisaq ( Sacred Valley )

6 Jun 2011

Pisaq is probably the most beautiful sight around Cusco ( minus Macchu Picchu ). The pictures listed are just a sad approximation of this beautiful place and fine day

Moray and Ollantaytambo (Sacred Valley)

4 Jun 2011

Moray and Ollantaytambo are both sites of the Sacred Valley area around Cusco. One is (Th T. ) is an old fort where the inca’s held out when they lost Cusco to the Spaniards, Moray is what people think a sort of laboratory, auditorium or place where the Inca’s used to play around. In the end, Salineas is a salt hill.

Huacachina (Ica)

Huacachina near Ica is America’s only oasis and a pretty weird place. Cusco will come a bit later, but today, enjoy these deserty pictures.

Ayacucho is known as the most colonial city after cusco and one of the nicer cities of Peru. Also known as the birthplace for the Marxist group ‘ Sendero Luminoso’ in one of the most remote areas of Peru. The road to Lima was completed only in 1999 and Cusco is a 200 km – 23 hour ride. On the photos is also the old capital of the Wari civilization which boosted an impressive 50.000 inhabitants about 1000 years ago.

Road Huancayo – Cusco

18 May 2011

The road from Huancayo to Ayacucho and from Ayacucho to Cusco is an interesting one. It’s only about 450 km as the bird flies, but the total time for this track is a stunning 32 hours by bus. It sounds like horror but I can recommend it. Not only will you get over any fear of dangerous driving and bad roads, but also will you see all types of landscapes Peru has to offer. And besides Ayacucho and Huancayo are very nice and lovely cities. Some crappy impressions from the road.

A nice city of about half a million, remotely located in the central highlands. A very nice place to hang around for a few a days if you ask me! The weird photo’s are local sites Torre Torre and Parque de la indentidad
