49b Lima - Day 2 - Shanty Town Tour

Small tuk tuks queue up to take those who find it difficult to walk all the
way up to their homes, but there is that point that on foot is the only way.
Smaller markets can be found closer to the homes, but their goods come with
a dearer price tag.
On our walk up we stopped at Maria's, with her outdoor makeshift kitchen on
one side and small barred window on the other where you can find a public
telephone; and she sells little luxuries like confectionary. Her home is a
classic example of how houses have evolved over the decades. One end still
made with heavy cardboard and iron roof, extended with timber and slowly
being replaced with concrete bricks.
