A Little Geography
It might help before we go to Peru to get a little orientation to Lima by looking at a map. There is a nice map at http://www.amigosdevilla.it/mapas/mapa0.htm. The airport is in Callao which is along the coast in the northwestern part of Lima. I will be staying for the next week in Miraflores which is in the center south of the map. This is the "high end" part of Lima (rich) and also contains a lot of the government buildings and so on. The brothers mission is in Lurigancho which is north and slightly east of Miraflores. The city of Cusco where we will be hiking to about 400 miles to the southeast of Lima. Lima is a large city, about 9 million people, and contains about 25% of the total population of Peru. By clicking on the small symbol in each area of Lima the map will zero in on a particular area. Good luck and have some fun.
