QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperBound, beaten and robbed: Backpackers attacked by whip-brandishing Peruvian villagers in 'savage' two day ordeal - I once shared a flat with a Peruvian girl. She did comment Peruvians are violent.- I once landed by night in Lima. I didn't want to take a taxi for getting to the city center as I didn't trust the taxistas there. I then started to walk to Lima downtown. A couple of minutes later, a police car came and asked me where I was going by walking, and got suspicious I hadn't picked a taxi. They warned Lima's subrubs are peligrosas and it was unsafe walking all alone. Then, followed a weird scene. I mean, the police car drove a few meters behind me for about 8 km, time for me to get to the center of the city.- Many times as I was in Peru, I heard stories of gringos tourists that had been stolen their sneakers or their mochillas.- I got in trouble with the local police. I was the victim, but they turned the situation as if I was the bad one! I wasted almost a complete day before they leave me alone.- I have a real good memory of Peru!

a lot of that going around
one of the links at the bottom of your story
2014: This Greenpeace Stunt May Have Irreparably Damaged Peru's Nazca Site
Greenpeace issued a passive aggressive non-apology, saying it was sorry if anyone was upset, but did not apologize for the vandalism itself,
The activists placed giant letters in the soil close to the figure of a hummingbird, saying “time for change, the future is renewable.” The message was intended to pressure negotiators at the UN climate talks happening in Lima.
(snip)
Yesterday, Greenpeace apologized for the stunt, saying it was sorry if the protest at the historical site on Monday caused an "moral offense" to the Peruvian people.
