Insectos de Lima

Jesús they have a lot of V.W. Beetles here. Beaters, mint, classics, pimped out.  And I heard today that ten years ago they accounted for almost every 2nd car.  It is not that crazy now but they are as ubiquitous as bugaboo strollers in Brooklyn. Turns out that Lima is similar to Cuba in its car culture but here they have mostly 70’s foreign rides as opposed to the plethora of 50’s American cars still running the streets in Havana.  Lots more cars to come…
