Miles of unplanned 'shantytowns' are being built on the outskirts of town. These towns usually lack proper water and sanitation facilities, and are infested with disease.
Lima is overcrowded, yet the people keep coming down from the mountain villages in hope of a better life. I hope the government can do something to fill the needs of the people.
One of the best nightspots in Lima
In Gotica you will see some the so-called elite of Lima, amongst others, parting with their cash on the slightly overpriced drinks. Besides the atmosphere, Gotica attracts internaional DJs and other perfomers making it one of the best nightspots. Anything not too scruffy..
Flying is the most practical...
Flying is the most practical option. Lima is not located near a border, and while there are buses that run along the coast, they tend to be slow, overcrowded and not that reliable. And unless you're coming from somewhere on the coast, flying is your only option given the mountainous terrain that separates the jungle from the ocean.
Cabs are usually easy to catch and are very cheap compared with the US and Europe. If you're going somewhere and not sure of the location, this is probably your best option.
If you do have a general idea of how to get somewhere, you might also catch a bus. They're very frequent and cheap, although they don't look much like the buses I'm used to, more like a large van. If you want to get off somewhere, just yell out and the driver will pull over (and if he can't, he'll let you out in the middle of the street!). Buses are not the most pleasant means of transportation since they really pack you in, but it's a good way to meet people.
We only got to see this as we drove past up on the cliff, and I was on the wrong side of the bus to get a very good picture. Classics
