Here is a good discussion on the subject further if you don't take my word for it :)
You would land in Thailand, you would arrive at the dentists (ouch - hate that),
or The backpacker landed in South America today and started her long adventure !
or my favorite the online surfer landed at the travel website !
It was a time dilemma: I had to get assignments marked and back to a university in Australia, but also had to organize a visa run. In Cambodia one can get extensions almost forever, but my passport had expired and been replaced so a fresh stamp was required. What to do, what to do? Tuk-tuk driver to the rescue.
“Nick can you come to my apartment, pick up my passport and arrange a boat ticket to Chao Doc on Friday for me?”
“Sure, no problem.” A few minutes later he showed up, tucked my passport and $100 into his shirt pocket, and fired up the tuk-tuk. Problem resolved, it was back to marking.
When living overseas – particularly for women – it is essential to have someone who can run the gauntlet for you. A person who knows where services are, can source whatever is needed and answer questions about cultural etiquette. This might involve going to the grocery store, finding a shoemaker or warning you that the area is dangerous and to keep your handbag secure.
Lima was a culturally important territory for both the pre-Columbian inhabitants of Peru and those who arrived to the coastal region with the destructive Spanish Conquest. Today, the country's history and culture can be explored through a number of nationally significant museums in the Central district of the capital.
Open since the late 1960s, Museo del Congreso y de la Inquisicion records the history of the Peruvian Inquisition. Victims of the inquisitorial regime, which stretched from 1570 to 1820, were tortured in the former National Senate, the very building in which the museum is now housed. The brutal methods used to torment inmates are graphically depicted in the museum through a series of wax-work figures. Visitors can also walk around the basement dungeons and former courtrooms. There are plenty of informational plaques around to direct guests during their visit.
Not that you would ever want to, but escaping food in Peru is simply not possible. The country is known for having an abundance of raw ingredients and a wide range of unique culinary creations. The Casa De La Gastronomia Peruana is a melting pot of all this food. Although located in Central Lima, the museum has details on regional specialties from throughout the ages, with information on influences, recipes, ingredients, trends and preparation techniques.
After spending nearly a year traveling around Peru, I can say with full confidence that Huaraz and the surrounding Cordillera Blanca mountain range, located eight hours north of Lima, is my favorite destination in the diverse country.
An adventure to Huaraz is even more astounding than a visit to Machu Picchu, dare I say. The Peruvian department of Ancash offers some of the best hiking and mountaineering, not only in Peru, but in the world. With its incredible beauty, low price tags, and scarcer tourists and badgering vendors than in Cuzco and Machu Picchu, Huaraz has won me over.
Surrounded by glaciated peaks, Huaraz makes a great base to acclimate to the altitude as the town is 3090 meters (10,140 ft) above sea level. While the town has few tourist attractions, it is a pleasant place even for the non-outdoorsy spirits, surrounded by remarkable scenery with good dining. The city was nearly leveled in a fatal earthquake in 1970 and is still a bit rough around the edges, surviving economically on tourism, agriculture, and mineral mining.
