We are starting out trip around Peru from the capital, Lima, the main entry point for foreigners arriving in Peru. Instead of going on a city tour, we walked a lot on our own. From Lima, we go to Trujillo, Huanchaco, Chiclayo, Arequipa, Chivay, Canyon de Colca, Puno, Lago Titicaca, Cusco, Valle Sagrado, Aguas Caliente and, of course, Machu Pichu. On the way we visited many archaeological sites and learnt about the ancient civilizations that made pre-Columbian Peru.

On this first video, we see only the highlights of our time in Lima. For the full story please watch the previous vlog “Living in Lima”, as we show places like the plazas in the city centre, the parks, the museums, the archaeological sites and even the Spanish school where we studied.
After departing Lima, we headed to the North Coast. From Trujillo we visited the cities of Huanchaco and Chiclayo, and the archaeological sites of Huaca de la Luna, Huaca del Sol, Chan Chan and the tomb of the Lord os Sipán, including their museums.
The exact places we visited in Lima were:
– Plaza San Martin
– Plaza Mayor (Armas) and the Old Town, including the government palace and churches
– Miraflores Clifftops & Larcomar Shopping Mall
– Museo de la Nacion
– Huaca Pucllana Archaeological Site
– Kennedy Park in Miraflores
– Museo Nacional de Arqueologia, Antropologia e Historia del Peru
– Circuito Magico del Agua
Após passar algumas semanas apenas em Lima estudando espanhol e conhecendo o que a capital peruana tem a oferecer, nós partimos para explorar o país. Começando pela região Norte, fomos até Trujillo, Chiclayo, Huanchaco, Huacas del Sol e de la Luna, Chan Chan e o sítio arqueológico da Tumba do Lorde Sipán. Depois, descemos pelo Sul do Perú e terminamos nossa jornada no interior, em Machu Pichu.
