I like the way the town is mapped out. The way the streets run in that town is almost perfect. You can't get lost there. A lot of folks from out of town un it down and that is because they are just jealous of the potentual Peru really has or they on drugs. There is more to Preu than the Circus, but not everything there is to appreciate about Peru is naked to the eye. And you can ask folks for the directions to how to get to another town, and they are more willing to help you find your way. In fact I have seen them line up to help.

Yes, because towns laid out in a grid are such a rarity in this country.

It would also seem strange for ANYONE to get lost in ANY town the size of Peru.

Peru has no jobs, or low paying ones, a huge drug problem and horrid housing.

KatKat,
There are huge drug problem in many cities in Indiana. Columbus is worse than Peru when it comes to meth operations. And in Michigan the unemployment rate is worse, but you won't here me running that beatiful state down. Right now there aren't hardley any place you can move to that isn't affected by the recession.

I'm not trying to run down Peru, its just facts on both counts. They have a huge coke as well as meth problem too. The businesses that folded in that town left long before this recession. The job outlook is really bleak for the working class, and has been for years. However there seems to be a large number of dive bars in the area that stay afloat.

I grew up in Peru and it does have it's minuses. And, I have heard all about the drug dealings, but I never actually seen any of those deals going down. I can bet there are other folks in Peru who can say the same thing. Now I wonder just how illegal drug use got to be such a big problem in Peru that it is practically staring you in the face KatKat and yet some of us are not actually bombarded by it.

I don't know why it is so bad in Peru. Maybe its the lack of jobs, people can make money while still having their drugs and no job if they sell the drugs. Peru is not the only small town with this problem I am sure. I've heard that people will sell the shirt off their back on Main street to get their coke or meth...how sad.

KatKat, there was a recent late night special that I watched concerning meth that I wish you have watched. Meth was inventented by the Japanese and given to their fighters to keep the going. The use of it in the United States dates back to the sixties a long the West Coast. For 20 years it remained unknowned to us in the heartland of USA. It was originally spread by biker gangs, and that doesn't mean that all bikers use meth or deal it. But one thing you can be certain is that it is not just a small town problem. You can find plenty of communities that have people there who would sell their shirts off their backs to get the stuff.
