Occupied for only a century, this site was a spectacular human achievement and waste of time.
We had to get there from Cusco by traversing Urubamba Valley, the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Incas thought the Andes was a great place to build a capital city. Of course, they were hopped up on coca leaves most of the time.
Lima is an amazing, chaotic city with a rich and tragic heritage that I’d highly recommend visiting.
South America is full of amazing places like Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, the Galápagos, and other places we didn’t visit.
