Exploring Peru

A June 2007 trip to Lima by ruelllyn

Quote: I have been traveling through Peru for two months. This journal will discuss some of the things I have encountered.

Museo Larco

Attraction | "Museo Larco or Larco Museum"

The museum is a privately-owned museum still run by the family of the founder archaeologist Rafael Larco Hoyle. It boasts approximately 45,000 pre-Columbian pieces including gold, ceramic, and textiles.

The erotic gallery is a must-see! It's full of ancient ceramics in sexual positions. It had a profound effect on me. I couldn't believe the intricacy and knowledge these pre-Columbian cultures had.

Check out the museum site:
