Lima – the good, the bad and the ugly


Lima is very much like Manila, literally and figuratively speaking, in all senses: the sights –the same look – from swanky residential districts to smoky, in their case,  foggy hillside squatter areas.


Similar smell – of the smog, that is -the polluted smoky atmosphere caused by diesel engines from micros (jeepneys in Manila) and buses.  Twin touches of road textures – moon-like surfaces of pothole-ridden streets. Sounds alike -horns blaring everywhere, bus barkers shouting in your ears. And taste – ahh, the best in culinary experience.


Lima affects you pretty much the same way as Manila – you love it and hate it at the same time. The next entries are a summary of the top five- the good, the bad and the ugly of what is Lima for me in the almost 4 years that I have been here.
