I had some time to kill on Saturday, so me and some of the other interns from where I work went into Central Lima — the old political heart of the city known for its colonial architecture — to check out the sights. There was a festival commemorating Peru’s upcoming Independence Day, so the place was bustling with activity. Tourists shared pavement with local professionals, vendors selling delicious street food and some pretty heavily armed police.
Have a look at a few of the shots I took there below.
I plan to head back this weekend to explore a little further and check out some museums. Until then, I need to try two things: Peruvian sushi and the country’s world-renowned ceviche. I’ll report back once I do.
