couples dancing in Miraflores, Lima

coming soon.. .lima gets a bad rep, but I wish I could stay longer. the smog was much worse in quito (barley noticed it here). We stayed in Miraflores, a nice neighborhood, with oodles of mouth watering food choices... 25 mins from the center of down. ...

last night went to this amazing beach an hour away, with a friend of a friend of a friend... more on that. holy shit is all I can say right now.

tomorrow we are flying over to lake titicaca.. stay tuned

THANK YOU! lima is hevily underrated because of the wether that, during winter, gives it a grey sky that makes smog levels more noticible. Lima, by itself, was the capital of South America for the 16-18th centuries. It offeres Pre-Inca ruins (huacas), colonial buildings (historic Center), and modern comercial areas (San Isidro and Miraflores). I would encourage anyone to visit this UNESCO world heritage site.

---clearing a sentence---

when i said that....
"Lima, by itself, was the capital of South America for the 16-18th centuries"
i meant it figurativly. It was the most important city in South America during spanish conquest.
