Lima — at least the part worth seeing — is built on a high bluff. If you go between May and October, this is pretty much what it looks like every day. No sun.
But you can imagine how exploring on foot gives a good workout. Of course I had to go check out that pavilion on the jetty.
Proof! Lots of crabs. And happy seagulls, no doubt. You’ll also see lots of wannabe surfers. I thought I had a picture of them, but the light was so drab I found it difficult to get enthusiastic about taking pictures.
In the middle of Miraflores, you’ll find the Huaca Pucllana, a massive construction of mud bricks. We took many photos, and most are about as drab as you’d expect when photographing piles of mud bricks in dull light. This particular construction technique, with spaces between the bricks, makes it resistant to earthquake damage.
And in places it does indeed look like it’s been shaken around a bit.
Did I say there was no sun in Lima? I lied. This must have lasted a full five minutes.
And then, finally, some interesting light in Lima. Sort of.
