!Saludos a mi familia y amigos! (Hello to my family and friends). This website started out as a class project but I turned it into something more personal, a travel log of my journey in Peru. I felt it was the perfect transition into college because in Peru I did not have my parents with me every day so I could be more independent than I was at home but I still had my family as a support system to take care of me
I did not want to go at first since it had been ten years since I had last visited Peru and on top of that I was flying alone for the first time. The idea of flying by myself from SFO to Mexico City to Peru was terrifying. From September 1st through the 19th I visited family and went sightseeing in the capitol called Lima as well as the surrounding cities such as Callao and Las Flores. As I went along my trip I snapped shots of things that interested me or I wanted to remember. The photo journal of my trip is divided into three sections: food, graffiti art, and a special tourist site the Parque de la Reserva (Circuito Magico del Aqua) which is in the Guinness World Records as the biggest water fountain complex in a public park. Enjoy!
