The Rich and the Poor

I've noticed that the people in this country live quite near to all of their ancient ruins.  Some of the poorest neighboorhoods are within walking distance of many archeological sites.  I wonder if there are ruins underneath them.  Maybe one day they will be completely forgotten or possibly destroyed forever.

This picture was taken in the town of Lamayeque

Within the hotel at Del PilarMiraflores, I could hardly tell I was in Peru. It was located in the center of Miraflores, a posh, european style area with many American chains such as McDonalds and Starbucks.
