A July 2002 trip
to Lima by astrid_travel
Quote: Backpacking solo along Peru's "gringo trail" from the capital Lima, along the South coast, to the beautiful city of Arequipa. There was never a dull moment, from being escorted by police in Lima to being tossed about in a light aircraft over the Nazca lines- this is my diary.

Attraction | "San Francisco Monastery and Catacombs."
The tour ends in the catacombs, where the monks were buried. You can still see the skulls and bones (there were thousands of people buried there); these have since been sorted out and arranged in patterns for easier viewing.

If you do find yourself in Lima, make the most of your time-the city has a lot to offer, and you never know. You may even end up enjoying it!
