I was born in the central Andes mountains of Peru, but I spent years in Lima while growing up. The scenes you will see in this amazing and touching video are part of what I saw as a child. Thank goodness I wasn't as poor as this kid but many of my school friends were, and they lived surrounded by this brutal poverty which I witnessed when I adventured secretly to their homes to play soccer or just hang out.
In the images of this video you will see the other side of Lima, the contrasting capital city of Peru. This the Lima that you won't see when you visit the huge Peruvian capital, because tourists are kept away from slums of course. But unless you walk these streets yourself, than you won't understand Peru, Lima and Peruvians completely. Well, maybe you don't have to be there to feel my people's pain.
Oh, Peru. So much injustice, so much inequality. I don't understand.
