Hello "Barbara", "Trey" and everyone else, your comments made me curious about the city of Lima, I'm Spanish but married to a Peruvian. I see you have doubts about this destination, so I'll give you a recommendation. Every time I go with my husband, the first thing we do is stay at the Hotel Libertador Lima, one because it is really well located and two, because of its excellent treatment given to us each time. Also its food is delicious, and the people in this place is very kind, they help us to organize some tours to different places in Lima. I think it's the best way to know a place, being well anchored and plan everything from your stay comfortable, so I share your its website if you want more information:

Hola! I am going to Peru with my best friend in October. We bought a one way ticket because we don't want this experience to be rushed like past journeys have been. Every time someone new finds out that we are going to Peru for an extended period of time they have negative reactions and insist that as two young caucasian girls on our own, we will encounter lots of danger. what do you think?? One of my friends thinks I am crazy to go to a place like Peru and not die my hair brown (im a redhead) he thinks it will make me a major "target". He also thinks FARC is a major issue for Americans in South America. Please can i have some feedback from you because I am starting to get worried
