I said in the previous post that people find Lima to be dirty. Where a small poor town in the mountains would be described by a tourist as authentic or rustic, the run down parts of Lima don’t get the same kind treatment. Also, for some reason, these tourists apply this to the whole city. Lima is poor, ugly and dirty they say.
North of Miraflores and it’s Costa Verde are towers of glass and pristine streets. These glass towers are the headquarters of numerous Peruvian and international mega corporations. San Isidro is the home to Lima’s business centre and infrastructure and is the wealthiest district in the city.
