Mis Viajes por America Sur

butterfly These are the WebPages of  Ian, a retired Englishman living in Lima, Peru. Have I bored you already? Well, read on; I haven't retired from life, my past life has been far from boring and it isn't boring now.

Please sign my guest book at the foot of this page. Then go on to read my travelers tales of my journeys in Peru and South America.

When the pop-up ad appears just single-left-click on the page in view, it will be hidden and you won't see it again.


You can read here tales of my travels around South America since I retired in March 1997. This will save me from becoming the ultimate pub bore and you can read all my tales here without having to buy me a beer (but one day I may catch up with you!)

The WebPages are nearly all text, with no sound and no video. Images are provided by linked pages from thumbnail pictures. (Just double click on the thumbnail to see the whole picture.) I will be very glad to receive comments and constructive criticism!

Since I am many thousands of miles away from most of my friends my first page describes my life now here in Lima, how I spend my time, where I go and who I know. All those in this category can go there by clicking above. Those who know me here in Lima can, if they wish, skip that page.
All of you then have a choice of one of the following pages -

  • Argentina: Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls.
  • Bolivia: Santa Cruz, Sucre, Potosi, Uyuni, La Paz.

Links to Favorite & Useful Sites

  • South American Explorers is an organisation with information resources and services for the independent traveler that can make your travels in South America a whole lot easier and cheaper.
  • Manchester became my adopted city and if there are two things I miss it is the concerts at the Bridgewater Hall and Band on the Wall (now there's a contradiction!). Now, for me, it really is a virtual city and Lima, Peru is my new home.
  • Ask Jeeves is on my list because, although he is a little quirky, he invariably comes up with an answer. Of course you have to ask the right question but he really is a useful chap.

Since I started these WebPages I have got involved in another WebPage project which required me to lift the lid of Pandoras box and get into HTML progamming. I can strongly recommend the following free sources which I found really valuable.
