Peruvian (and others as well) forumers always show the same photos of the same places to the forum and to each other, it's one giant hypocrisy circus.

One day google street view will come to Lima though, circus will be over .

That said, the photos are good quality.

Eklips always post the same post on the threads of Lima, that's a circus.

Ok hunny, its ENOUGH

Nobody is going through every thread that peruvians make of Lima talking about how ugly is the city like you, only because you were (or you are... I don't know!) here for some months. As we say in Peru: Ubicate.

I think is OBVIUS for example, that this thread is more about HISTORIC Lima than any other part of the city, But I think that you care little or nothing, just come and proclaim everywhere that we do'nt put pictures of the poor side of it, or the "real" part of it.
Well, in the Peruvian forum are the photos you want, I have in my portfolio pictures of Barrios Altos, and so on. And anyway, if you dislike every thread of Lima, then make one yourself (here in urban showcase) or simply don't post on the existing ones if you're so upset.

Otro mensajito querido, en español, entre latinos : NADIE en este subforo muestra en el thread principal de su ciudad las partes pobres de la misma, siempre se muestra lo mejor, sobre todo de una ciudad de la que TODOS saben que esta en un país pobre, y por lo tanto es una ciudad pobre. Siempre se abre un thread a parte, aunque es un poquito de mal gusto que lo haga un extrangero como vos no?, pero si deseas, hazlo y dejanos en paz!
Y no te creas tanto que por estar unos meses estudiando barrios pobres, que algunos los conocemos mejor que tu sin andar pregonándolo por todo el foro.

Saluts.

But even historically, there is so much more to show!

No worries, I don't think peruvian (or any other) forumers should have a poverty fetichism, I think it's all about showing a city or not.

SSC is not a travel agency, we are a community of people who are here to discuss urbanism, architecture and cities in general. I think it is safe to post what cities really look like and not just try to sell them to people who don't care anyways.

It's not just about showing the "dark" sides, it's about showing the city in itself, I would hate to always see shown the paris equivalents of the centro historico and the costa verde. (say the monuments and the 16th district in Paris). Don't you think it is more interesting to see real cities on the forum? The cities of the day to day life, where people live, love, work and die. Not just monuments and shiny buildings?

If I focus a bit on Lima, it's because I like and "know" (obviously not as much as you people ) the city, so I know that all that is shown here is an uniteresting facade. But it is true for all of the forum, and I sometimes complain.


Though I will stop bothering people when they post photos of Lima here on the international board, there already aren't a lot so I don't want to ruin them .

Hermano, mira a este thread hecho por un forista extranjero de una ciudad francesa, Marsella http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1026663
Para mi esta genial! Esta persona solo ha fotografiado lo que vi en esta ciudad. Vas a tener una idea mucho mas clara de lo que es Marsella mirando este hilo que si el pata habia puesto solo fotos de los 3 monumentos de la ciudad. No te parece mas interesante?
