Inca Kola is a local soda. Some peruvians are proud to say that Coca-Cola had to buy Inca Kola because couldn´t compete with it in the peruvian market!!!
I didn´t like it much. It´s sweet and tasteless. But it seemed to be really popular among local people. Everywhere there were people drinking it... maybe more than Cokes... :)
Most visitors to Lima and Peru...
Most visitors to Lima and Peru miss an opportunity to teach English to the locals and really get to know them. Each year a group of students from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida spends six weeks in the jungle research center of GAI near Iquitos.
It's a fairly simple matter to find your way around the rest of this huge, spread-eagled city. Almost every corner of it is linked by a regular municipal bus service , known to everyone as El Bussing, with flat-rate tickets (around $0.2) bought from the driver as you board. In tandem with these are the privately owned microbuses , older and smaller, more colourful and equally crowded, but again with flat rates (25¢). Quickest of all Lima transport, combi colectivos race from one street corner to another along all the major arterial city roads. You'll see "Todo Arequipa" or "Todo Benavides", for example, chalked up on their windscreens, which indicates that the colectivo runs the whole length of Avenida Arequipa or Avenida Benavides. Colectivos dash dangerously fast, frequently crashing and speeding off before their passengers have got both feet into the vehicle, and might be anything from a ramshackle Dodge Coronet to a plush fifteen-seater minibus; wave one down from any corner and pay the flat fare (around $0.4) (1 sol )to the driver or fare collector. You can catch colectivos or buses to most parts of the city from Avenida Abancay. Taxis can be hailed on any street, and cost $2-4 to most central parts of the city. It's worth reiterating that driving in Lima is incredibly anarchic - it's not that fast, but it is assertive, with undertaking happening as often as overtaking and drivers, especially taxistas, finding gaps that don't appear to exist (one reason why there are so many damaged cars).

Bolognesi 460, Miraflores
This upscale spot is in a pleasant location overlooking a secluded park on a Miraflores backstreet.
well, how often does a non-Peruvian get real Peruvian food!! I mean I ate Swiss fondue in Lima (some of the best I've had), German food (not as good as in Germany), and Chinese food (there are very good Chinese restaurants) but I enjoyed the Peruvian. I also ate at another restaurant famous for Peruvian food and I shall have to find my photos so I can recall the name. Loma Saltado
Old nice church with bones....
From the 17th century(1674), this is a really nice old church.
The catacombs contain skulls and leg bones of about 75,000 people, some of them monks that used to live here. It's really pretty bizarre. They often have been stacked in eerie geometric patterns.
Open: Mon - Sunday 9:30am - 5:30pm
