There are smaller buses like Volkswagen vans that are called "combis" and they are used to get to the out-of-the-way places like up on the hills. This is what we take to get up to our ward each Sunday.
Our favorite type of transportation is the "moto". It's the most expensive but it gets us there really fast and avoids all the busy, busy streets. It's a tight squeeze! They charge us about $1.00 to where we want to go.
You don't see a lot of motorbikes and bicycles in Lima due to all of the traffic and it's very unsafe, but there are few brave souls who use them.
There are about 10 million people living in Lima and we are convinced that 5 million of them own a taxi. Taxis are relatively cheap, have no meters in them and you negotiate the price. That can always be interesting.
Our favorite mode of transportation is walking to where we need to go if it's within a mile or so. So many things to see and so much action happening on the streets.
