Since I have quite a few to share, I´m going to break them up into a couple posts according to the areas of town they were taken.
First, here are some from exploring the Miraflores district which is northwest, 30-45 minutes walking distance, from Barranco. It is arguably the nicest distrcit in Lima. There are many designer shops, a boardwalk, fancy hotels and it is quite clean and mostly unstinky. That was all nice and well, but my favorite part of Miraflores was north of the main roundabout and park, where there is a large artisan market called Indio Market. I am sucha sucker for crafted goods. Plus, they have so many things made out of alpaca wool, and it is so soft!
|The equivalent of City Hall (Municipalidad de Miraflores) is the yellow building and just past it on the right is the cathedral. Both buildings are right across the street from Parque Miraflores, which is to the right in this picture.|

|I´ve realized, I really like water features. I just thought this one was so cool! It is on the north side of Parque Miraflores, across the street from City Hall.|
