I probably wasn’t going to do a ‘Through My Lens’ on Lima. From memory, that of a year ago, it didn’t stand out as one of the most amazing places I’d visited visually. But then I looked through the photos I took and I thought ‘gees there’s such contrasts, interesting buildings, architecture, and more’. So that’s why it’s here today.
The swish suburb of Miraflores is right on the coast, where the rich hang out and enjoy shopping and life, and the waves crash down below cliffs. And the day I was there, there was some gliding going overhead as well. It was quite the playground.
But if there is one downside in Lima, it is definitely the traffic! Aye aye aye! It’s never quick to go anywhere!
And my last day in Lima there were fire engines out in the main squares and people paying their respects. Two fireman had died fighting a fire. It was very touching, almost heart warming to see in such a big city, there was such care and respect for those who had lost their lives protecting others.
So there’s a little look at Peru’s main city – hope you enjoyed it! Take care and May the Journey Never End!
