LAPT Lima: Kemal Ferri from Peru surges to victory

Pauly McGuire

Our week in Lima, Peru has been nothing short of wonderful. On our first evening here, we were treated to a hospitable welcome party alongside the ancient ruins of the Huaca Pucllana pyramid. We had the rare opportunity to tour the ruins at night and learned about early Peruvian culture, particularity the fact that the base of the pyramid was used for human sacrifice and other rituals to worship the ocean gods and their deceased ancestors. When we returned to the festivities, we were entertained by traditional Peruvian dancers and musicians playing Incan woodwinds and percussion. Oh, and how could we forget the succulent ceviche and a never-ending flow of Pisco Sours that began on Wednesday and has not stopped flowing.
