The architecture and ornate details had us at hello!
And the doors- oh the doors of Peru made me come back very sad to the plain, boring, neutral doors we have in the US.
This was also an excellent time to shop! Some of the best deals can be found in Cusco and Lima, and we waited for Lima to pick up some final souvenirs. It paid off, we saved quite a bit!
There are plenty of tourist and locals alike. I couldn’t help but snap a pic of the photo shoot for the quincenera. The doting mother (in purple) just cracked me up. She was more into this than the daughter!
Knowing the history of Peru and the earthquakes that leveled the city, I felt even more appreciation for the ornate churches and beautiful buildings!
We really enjoyed our time in the main plaza, as well as the drive back to the hotel in Mira Flores where we stayed. Lima is one unique, diverse, amazing city!
