Last month I was lucky enough to make a trip to Peru. Lima and the nearby coast were great places to visit and at just the right time; it’s Spring down there so I left behind a British winter. The main story dominating the newspapers was political corruption. It’s a shame really because the Peruvian economy has many positives and yet the people are saddled with politicians on the take. It’s also having a negative effect on how Peruvians feel about democracy.
