Huaca Pucllana

So it turns out there is a pyramid in the middle of Lima. I had never heard of Huaca Pucllana until I started planning this trip, but our visit there was a highlight of a very long day that began with a lecture on biodiversity and the Humboldt Current, and included a visit to a fish market, a monastery, the catacombs under the monastery, and the Plaza de Armas and colonial Lima.

I'm tired and have to finish packing for our flight to Cusco tomorrow, so one picture is all I'm going to be able to give you. We climbed to the top of the pyramid and our guide said, “This is good practice for Machu Picchu.” I may have muttered something to the effect that since this pyramid is at sea level, I'm not sure how much practice it would give us. But I'm willing to count it.
