Peru Pictures #1

Instead of entering into a cliché apology for not blogging for a while, I want say that I am happy to report that I have finally found a solution to watermarking, as well as time to start sorting out my 3200-odd pictures from my trip last July to Peru. I will post them over the coming months as it fits with my Uni schedule.

These pictures were taken on our first day in Lima, I hope you’ll enjoy them :)



These pictures where taken on our drive into our hotel, Sheraton, near Lima's historic centre.

After a couple of hours sleep and breakfast at the hotel, we were picked up by a guide and taken round to see a few different parts of Lima. These pictures are from the old city centre. The Church is called San Francisco, it is also a monasteryThe photo above shows a view to the colourful shanty towns, or Pueblos jóvenes as they are called in Peru, inhabited by people migrating to the capital for work from e.g. the Andes.

Above right is a picture of how the city cleaners where dressed, the mouth piece was definitely necessary due to the chemicals from the poor refinement of oil used for petrol. Walking around in Lima and elsewhere of resulted in headache due in part to the gasses from the petrol.

A few pictures of our drive to the next stop, the National Museum of Archeology, Anthropology and History.



A few pictures of some of the gems within the National Museum of Archeology, Anthropology and History. Definitely worth a stop, however as most text when we visited was in Spanish we were very happy to have our guide show us round explaining the different displays.

Our final stop was a quick view of the ocean in Miraflores.

I hope you enjoyed this first post of several, check back next week for more pictures.
