of ''Fragaria chiloensis'', the Concepción strawberry: "Several fruits, like pears, apples, strawberries, etc. were ripe. For dessert we were served some strawberries of a marvellous taste, whose size equalled that of our largest nuts. Their color is a pale white. They are prepared in the same manner as we fix them in Europe, and, although they have neither the color nor the taste of ours, they do not lack excellence."

to treat the malaria prevalent in the area of the Great Black Swamp). At the County Commission session on June 6, 1831, the formation of a second township, Jackson (Jackson Township, Allen County, Ohio), was approved. In 1916 Vallejo moved to Lima, where he studied at National University of San Marcos, read, worked as a schoolteacher, and came into contact with artistic and political avant-garde. While in Lima he also produced his first poetry collection, ''Los Heraldos Negros (Los heraldos negros).'' Despite its publication year of 1918, the book was actually published a year later. It is also heavily infuenced by the poetry and other writings of fellow Peruvian Manuel González Prada, who had only recently died. Vallejo then suffered a number of calamities over the next few years: he refused to marry a woman with whom he had an affair and thus lost his teaching post, his mother died in 1920, and he went to prison for 105 days for alleged intellectual instigation of a partisan skirmish in his hometown, Santiago de Chuco. Nonetheless, 1922 he published his second volume of poetry, ''Trilce,'' which is still considered one of the most radically avant-garde poetry collections in the Spanish language. After publishing the short story collections ''Escalas melografiadas'' and ''Fabla salvaje'' in 1923, Vallejo emigrated to Europe under the threat of further incarceration and remained there until his death in Paris in 1938. 1990s The 1990s brought a series of changes. Deregulation of the Mexican airline industry brought new competitors. Seeking to remain competitive, the airline updated their fleet with European-built Airbus A320 (Airbus A320 family)s in 1991 and Dutch Fokker F100s in 1992. In 1993, a reorganized AeroMéxico took over as the company struggled financially. During the mid-1990s, the Mexican economy was hard-hit by the devaluation of the Mexican peso and Mexicana, AeroMéxico, and their regional affiliates were nationalized when their parent company, CINTRA (Corporación Internacional de Transporte Aereo), was taken over by the government. The airlines remained in their merged state until 2005. As happened in 1967, a new management team was hired, this time headed by President and CEO, Fernando Flores. The company was reorganized and rationalized, with a new emphasis placed on international service. Unprofitable routes were cut and the DC-10s were retired. The airline ventured deep into South America by adding flights to Lima, Peru, Santiago de Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina and further into North America, adding flights to Montreal, Canada. To operate these new and longer routes, the airline leased Boeing 757s. Another aspect of this reorganization involved the creation of alliance (airline alliance)s. Mexicana was part of regional alliances LatinPass and Alas de America, and they later formed an alliance with United Airlines. This latter alliance brought Mexicana into the network of global alliances, as it eventually led the airline into the Star Alliance. Recognizing the usefulness and importance of the Internet, the airline launched a website and eventually included a reservation center. Also around this time, Mexicana adopted a new color scheme, with assorted colors on the tails of their planes. Pre-Columbian The prehistoric Tello Obelisk, found in 1919 at ''Chavín de Huantar'' in Peru, is a monolith stele with obelisk-like proportions. It was carved in a design of low relief with Chavín symbols, such as bands of teeth and animal heads. Long housed in the ''Museo Nacional de Arqueología, Antropología e Historia del Perú'' in Lima, it was relocated to the ''Museo Nacional de Chavín'', which opened in July 2008. The obelisk was named for the archeologist Julio C. Tello, who discovered it and was considered the "father of Peruvian archeology." He was America's first indigenous (Indigenous peoples of the Americas) archeologist. Richard L. Burger, Abstract of "The Life and Writings of Julio C. Tello", University of Iowa Press, accessed 27 September 2010 '''Jorge Chávez International Airport''' Dmoz:Regional South America Peru Departments Lima Lima Commons:Category:Lima Wikipedia:Lima

From here the road descends into the Callejón de Huaylas, demarcated by the Cordillera Blanca to the east and the Cordillera Negra ("Black Range") to the west. To the south rise the summits of the cordillera de Huayhuash (Cordillera Huayhuash). Famous examples are the San Felipe del Morro Castle (Fort San Felipe del Morro), located in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Sugar Loaf (Sugarloaf Mountain, Brazil) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Morro Solar in Lima, Peru and Morro Rock in California, USA.

'''Francisco Maldonado da Silva''' (1592–1639) was an Argentinian marrano physician, who learned about his Jewishness through his father Diego Nuñez da Silva, who was a Jewish physician. Francisco studied the scriptures while he was a medical student. After a few years in Chile he decided to assume fully his Jewishness and stop hiding as a Christian (marrano). He was abducted at night and taken to Lima where he was held in the secret prisons of the Inquisition for 6 years, during those years he was confronted 13 times with Christian theologians to try to help him find the "True Faith". His astounding knowledge made him valuable even to his enemies. He was held accountable for the heresy of honoring the "law of Moses", something objectionable to the Holy Inquisition. Finally he was burned at the stake with eleven other Jews in the largest ''Auto da Fe'' recorded in history. birth_date Dmoz:Regional South America Peru Departments Lima Lima Commons:Category:Lima Wikipedia:Lima

Lima

'''Lima''' is the capital (capital city) and the largest city of Peru. It is located in the valleys of the Chillón (Chillón River), Rímac (Rímac River) and Lurín (Lurín River) rivers, in the central coastal part of the country, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Together with the seaport of Callao, it forms a contiguous urban area known as the Lima Metropolitan Area. With a population of almost 10 million, Lima is the most populous metropolitan area of Peru (List of metropolitan areas of Peru), and the third largest city in the Americas (Largest cities in the Americas) (as defined by "city proper").

Lima was founded by Spanish (Spanish people) conquistador Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535, as ''Ciudad de los Reyes''. It became the capital and most important city in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru. Following the Peruvian War of Independence, it became the capital of the Republic of Peru. Today, around one-third of the Peruvian population lives in the metropolitan area (Lima Metropolitan Area).

Lima is home to one of the oldest higher learning institutions in the New World. The National University of San Marcos, founded on May 12 of 1551, during Spanish colonial regime (Viceroyalty of Peru), is the oldest continuously functioning university in the Americas.

In October 2013, Lima was chosen in a ceremony in Toronto to host the 2019 Pan American Games. It also hosted the 2014 United Nations Climate Change Conference in December of that year.
