"Shanty Towns" Lima Local Custom Tip by frankcanfly
Lima Local Customs: 50 reviews and 90 photos
Miles of unplanned 'shantytowns' are being built on the outskirts of town. These towns usually lack proper water and sanitation facilities, and are infested with disease.
Lima is overcrowded, yet the people keep coming down from the mountain villages in hope of a better life. I hope the government can do something to fill the needs of the people.
