From the Publisher
Welcome to Peru
Peru is as complex as its most intricate and exquisite weavings. Festivals mark ancient rites, the urban vanguard beams innovation and nature brims with splendid diversity.
Giant sand dunes, chiseled peaks and Pacific breaks a few heartbeats away from the capital’s rush- hour traffic: take this big place in small bites and don’t rush. And that’s when you realize: in Peru the adventure usually lies in getting there.
