Lima



Lima is not a city I immediately warmed to, with its blanket of mist that covers it for 8 months of the year.


However the cosmopolitan capital of Peru grew on me (almost literally!) with lots of tasty cerviche (the national dish of fish "cooked" in lime juice) and modern Peruvian restaurants.


Miraflores is an upmarket “beach”-side suburb. The cliff that borders the Pacific Ocean is spectacular and a popular place for paragliders. We had lots of fun wandering along the park here admiring the views and acrobatics.
The National Museum had a great display about all of the different precolumbian cultures that have been present in this archaeologically rich country. It was a good overview to put all the places we´re seeing into perspective.


And how can you not feel safe when Jesus is on the police force!?
