The sights of Peru are breathtaking. In this post we will show you some of the incredible things you will see on a Mentors International expedition.
While the first half of the expedition is spent visiting our wonderful clients (read part 1), the second half of the trip is spent learning about the amazing culture and history of Peru.
As you are stepping off the plane in Lima, a fine mist fills your lungs as you breathe in the smell of the ocean and the salty fish meal. Walking through the parks off of Malecó Cisneros overlooking the cliffs in and beautiful coastline of Lima.
Lima is quite the enchanting city. The beautiful coast, the colors, the food, and of course the people – once you arrive it all comes alive.
Next, we take you to Northern Lima where you will see many of our clients. Houses are built on mounds and you will quickly come to see how it is that so many 10 million people live in this city.
Huaral is a farming community about 47 miles north of Lima. With amazing coastal views, we were able to visit many of our clients that had experienced flooding about a year previous. It was inspiring to see them start anew with courage and hope.
Sachsayhuaman is a temple complex in Northern Cusco constructed during Incan Pachacuti’s reign. The incredible technique of fitting 100-ton rocks tightly together leaves people in awe to this day. (Above: Photo credit: Darkmagic)
