is the capital of Peru and was founded in 1535 by the
Spanish "Conquistador' Pizarro. The city replaced
Cusco as capital and soon became the richest settlement
of Spain in the New World. Today Lima is a metropolis
of over eight and a half million inhabitants. In the

colors range from deep blue to pale green. An extraordinary
variety of wildlife makes its home by the lake, including
