Don't you find that in every major city? I mean we're talking about things that Lima didn't have 15 years ago. I understand what you're trying to say though. the gap is incredible because a lot of people don't have access to all the comodities the city offers. This not happening in Latinamerican only,But its the same in China, India , and other developing countries.

What the...???? What do you mean "get their act together", do you want middle class and upper class peruvians to go live in shacks, or do you prefer that they give up their homes for slum dwelers?

If there is a failry large middle class in Lima, it's because these people, like my family, have worked hard to earn what they have....OK?? How can these people live well? EASY, working hard and earning everything they have. Period.

DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT?????? I myslef been to Lima persoally and I never expierenced and of the things you listed. I've seen more homeless people in NYC than Lima. 300,000 out of over a million isn't that bad considering it is a third/developing country. You shoudl actually mak an attempt to visit Lima. That you you would eat your words right back. As for me I give Lima 10/10.

7/10

Love the skyscrapers on the cliff look, plus a lot of innovative and unusual buildings as well as lots of greenery. Love it! Lack of height brings my score down a bit though.

Dug this up today after the first episode of Amazing Race 7 screened in Australia last night - one of the contestants, a chopper pilot who was held prisinor in Iraq, compared Lima to Baghdad. A very unfair comparison from what I've seen.

Being a POW really messed up his head. comparing Lima to Baghdad is like comparing sydney to Kabul.
