Sharon arrived – as do most U.S. visitors to Lima – in the very dark of night around midnight just after our return from Arequipa and Colca Canyon. During her visit we took long walks along the Malecon (the board walk overlooking the sea) and wandered through Miraflores discovering restaurants, shops and artisan markets.
I’ll let the pictures tell the tale of some of our adventures.
All visits to Miraflores include a trip to Parque de Amor (Love Park) and Sharon's was no exception. For those of you who have been to Barcelona, you may notice the inspiration of Gaudi's architecture.
The kitty cats are also a constant for visitors and were willing to share our attention with a visitor.
Of course, dining is a major activity here as well and we made sure to partake...
Sharon was able, as only a big sister can, to get our house in order and help finalize the unpacking process. This now feels like home and she was a big part of that. Hence the smiling faces on the happy Lima lovebirds....
You're all welcome to join us for a visit and an opportunity to share in our new life. We are thoroughly enjoying it (mostly.... stay tuned for the adventures after the arrival of our car!)
