Lima, Peru

Lima has a pulse arterial and venous it flows… all the colors of the rainbow glow in the mist of Pacific sea's hectic days and disco nights beat into the sand at the ocean's lea. Lima's life flows from Palacio de Gobierno ... in measured meter from the fountain glow amidst a Catholic sea spirits rise of the children of the sun cleansed of their faith by papal decree. Lima wealth flows its chic denizens prance baroque boulevards barricaded behind razor wire's show life for the wealthy addressee distanced from the hovels of El Salvador and the festive strum of the mariachi. Lima has a pulse arterial and venous it flows... as buses disgorge invaders, colorful, slow Shamanism lies in a Catholic sea proud, head held high, clinging to He beat into the sand at the ocean's lea.

Sounds like an intresting "trip". Have you ever been there? I know someone who wrote about the 50 States even though he had not been to all of them. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
