Republic of Peru

Peru is a country located in western South America. It is bordered on the north by Ecuador and Colombia, on the east by Brazil, on the southeast by Bolivia, on the south by Chile, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean.


Travel – and this I realized a long time – not only help to understand the country and the people living in them, how much, first of all, himself. After all, for some two or three weeks, it is hardly possible to feel deeply unfamiliar land and its inhabitants, is a trip offers a chance to see something new, hitherto unknown. This is facilitated by the new circumstances of life during these trips (because each of them – a kind of microcosm of life.)


Nowadays often meet avid tourist or traveler that is put into a new overseas journey with a single purpose – to make sure that everything is the same everywhere, or rather, about the same. Sometimes I agree with this conclusion, sometimes not. Everyone is really very similar. And yet so many different things … If it would have been the same, one, there would be no collections of those experiences that each trip carefully taken out of their visits.

Peruvian territory was home to ancient cultures spanning from the Norte Chico civilization, one of the oldest in the world, to the Inca Empire, the largest state in Pre-Columbian America. The Spanish Empire conquered the region in the 16th century and established a Viceroyalty, which included most of its South American colonies. After achieving independence in 1821, Peru has undergone periods of political unrest and fiscal crisis as well as periods of stability and economic upswing.

Peru is a representative democratic republic divided into 25 regions. Its geography varies from the arid plains of the Pacific coast to the peaks of the Andes Mountains and the tropical forests of the Amazon Basin. It is a developing country with a high Human Development Index score and a poverty level around 28.7 percent Its main economic activities include agriculture, fishing, mining, and manufacturing of products such as textiles.

South America – a continent especially surreal. “Unreality” – that’s the word that is probably most often we utter in Peru. Someone remembers photographs of the lunar landscape, some fantastic pictures in the style of Bosch, someone else something like that … I’m just a bookworm, often pop up pieces of the great Latin American novels: Borges, Marquez, Cortazar, Llosa, being here in Peru – it does not matter, in the mountains, jungle or desert – you know that it is the unreality of the environment, more precisely, the harmonious combination of the real and the unreal, and causes them to write exactly as they are written. “Writing” even may not be quite the right word, more of a “shaman”, “magic” with the word, takes the reader into some narcosis.

There is a scientific term “psychogeography”. It is defined as the study of the exact effects of the geographical environment and the impact of this environment on a separate (and, perhaps, and not just individual) rights. This science, in my view, is studying how the scene is replaced by the action space. The fact that the site “works”, I was convinced everywhere, wherever he is. The massive energy influence Peruvian jungle and the Sierra, and the Nazca desert, with its mysterious characters, I think, felt all been in these parts.


The Peruvian population, estimated at 29.5 million, is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Europeans, Africans, and Asians. The main spoken language is Spanish, although a significant number of Peruvians speak Quechua or other native languages. This mixture of cultural traditions has resulted in a wide diversity of expressions in fields such as art, cuisine, literature, and music.

Peru – it’s another world, another planet. This is what was the Earth thousands of years ago, and the local folk kept its natural, pristine nature, except that some of them put on a modern outfit. So here a view of the world, other relationships, other values.

In contrast to Europe, where the history of rock stuck in the stone ages froze Peru


Peru is divided into 25 regions and the province of Lima. Each region has an elected government composed of a president and council that serve four-year terms. These governments plan regional development, execute public investment projects, promote economic activities, and manage public property. The province of Lima is administered by a city council.
