L is for Lima

2018 #AtoZ Challenge

We’re headed south today. South America, that is, and the country of Peru. Lima is the country’s capital and is one of the largest cities in this southern hemisphere’s continent.

The National University of San Marcos, founded in 1552,  is Lima’s oldest university and is the longest continuously running academic institution in all of the Americas.

Next year, 2019, Lima will host the Pan American Games.
