Bone Deep

Of all of the informational tours that we went on, I enjoyed the bus tour of Lima the most. I really appreciated the opportunity to see the city of Lima as a whole, as well as the ability to see the different districts and their unique characteristics. During the tour, we were even able to witness the changing of the guards and other old-fashioned buildings in downtown Lima. One of the highlights of the tour was the visit to one of the old churches in Peru. In the church we were able to see some of the original paintings in the church as well as the detailed of the architecture and d├ęcor. The best part of the church however, was our trip down to the crypts in the basement of the church. This was one of the most eye opening visits for me, because we were able to see the history come to life instead of just hearing about it. The human bones in the church showed a rich preservation of the culture and history of the church and was definitely one of the best images of the whole time. Of course, I also left the church with a epic story to tell family friends. After dropping my phone and having to fish it out of a pit full on ancient human femurs, I can definitely say that the visit to the church was one of the highlights of my trip.
