Peru is farthest country I’ve visited . Yes, Machu Picchu is the reason for the visit . I met a guy at Huaca pyramid in Lima , and he surprised me with a question : from here , if we draw a straight line across the Pacific Ocean , whether Indonesia is a large country first encountered? Yes.  Then I asked myself . Why do I have to fly far to the north and then to the south ? 🙂

Jorge Chavez International Airport , Lima

Of course , my first step in Jorge Chavez International Airport , Lima is the heroic experience . In addition, the other passengers on the plane applause after landing . I don’t know why. I feel like in Latin film that I watch sometimes

A visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site , Historic Centre of Lima in the old part of town was an interesting experience .

Walking alone in the bustling tourist area with lots of police everywhere and especially in tourist spots , I’m not sure I feel safe or worry :). But the attractions are too good to be missed.

Plaza de armas or Plaza Mayor is the original city centre, founded in 1535, although almost all of the original structures were lost in the earthquake of 1746. The only original structure remaining  is the bronze fountain in the center, built in 1651

And I was really impressed with Larcomar, a large shopping center complex . It is the coolest shopping center I have ever visited . Although I’m not a fan of shopping malls , but this place caught my attention . located in a hilly area with views of the Pacific Ocean , it is really cool .
