Ancient Peru

We visited Museo Larco, to understand the history of ancient Peru. The collection of ceramic, clay and tapestry works of art is unique in Lima.

Within the gardens there is a great restaurant. Where we had excellent food and tequenos – Fried pastry stuffed with cheese. Very tasty, moreish and perfect for vegetarians. Served with guacamole and aji sauce. Perfect match!

Lastly, there is an entire section of ancient erotic sculpture which is definitely one of a kind. Here we learned that the ancient Peruvians believed that the dead did not partake in sex but had to continually masturbate in order to keep the earth fertile.
