Huaca Pucclana or Pucclana Pyramid lies right in the heart of central Lima, in the Miraflores District. It is a magnificent archeological piece that was made of clay on seven staged platforms.

Dave, Thank you for your comment. I know from your last mail, you would be closely observing where I go next. And knowing fully well that a veteran and history buff like you (I read your Bolivia journey so well in the past) sets the bar high, So I am careful when I travel and write. It's a lifelong learning from folks like you, David and MJ and so many others! I am trying to meet expectation!!! Thanks again!

Thank you, Tab. I am indeed planning a trip to Peru for next summer. I've already been to the south of the country and this time I'm planning to visit Lima and other places in central and northern Peru. Lima seems a very interesting city to visit. All the best also in your trip to Tanzania 😊

Alex, it's a great idea to visit Lima. One thing I missed...paragliding near the coastline over the Pacific. I bite my fingers as they didn't have empty slot. If you love it, go for it. Otherwise, you will not regret Lima...you been to Peru already, so you are somewhat familiar with the locals, but Lima also offers a big city culture, that you would probably enjoy. I was in Tanzania when you sent me this comment. Sorry, couldn't respond...it was not a happy ending in Tanzania. I broke my leg and still recovering at home in Canada after some intense surgery. Can't wait to be on the road again...
