I travelled in Peru in August and September 1995. Peru had long been on my list of countries to visit, because of its incredible ancient history over thousands of years and because of its amazing landscapes, notably the Andes. Lima grabbed me by the throat and proved to be one of the most dynamic but tense places I have visited. I found it relatively easy to get around by microbus and public transportation. And it was a sprawling mess of a place and bigger than I ever could have imagined. Please click on each image for a larger view with the lightbox tool.
