Lima and Immediate Area
Lima, at the time when William Fea arrived in 1838, was a pleasure loving city with most of its inhabitants being colourful characters. There were women water carriers in the squares conveying casks by mule around the city.
At night, the natives would gather in the Plaza and drink exotic drinks of great potency. The ladies appeared most attractive although their faces were largely covered with just a tiny aperture to peep through. Seeing a lady could be expensive.
The neighbouring pleasure town of Chorrillas treated money more seriously. William describes the depravity there, on all sides, as appalling.
Amancaise, two miles from Lima was seen as a more innocent pleasure haunt.
