Lima Trip - Day 2

A gray, overcast day here today, but warm - I took advantage and got outside for a bit of a walk around the area. Lima (and the part where I am, Miraflores) would remind you of a metropolitan city like Chicago. It's big (10m people) and very western...you can find lots of comfort food if you're worried about any of the local cuisine. With departing tomorrow for Cusco, I'm not going to go too overboard today but will be back on Sunday to try more options.

Learned another tidbit about the microclimates in Peru last night. Lima is in spring/summer right now, while Cusco will be in fall when I get there. And Lima hardly ever gets rain...they don't even have street drains.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  1. Would the leaves fall on a different schedule in each place? Wild.

  2. Not sure...but with the change from dry climate to jungle, I'm sure there are quite a few changes!
