More Lima ruins

We made another trip to ruins today - once again reminding us that the Incas we think were all of the pre-Spanish activity were hardly a blip on the historic radar. This temple dated back to 500 BC. It as a temple and then a burial grounds and then a worship space again. The bodies are buried in year fetal position to prepare for rebirth.

Then we went it the a 600 year old Olive Garden brought over from Spain. The trees were twisted and still producing Olive oil. Are onus them were some of the most lovely homes I have seen in a Peru - built by the Europeans who came her after WWII.
