The colonial architecture in Lima is extremely impressive, especially when you had to down town. The tourist district is called Mira Flores and after you hop into a 20 min. taxi you arrive in the historic center. When I arrived it wasn’t the best days but I made the most of it by interacting with a handful of artists and just getting lost in the streets. The Centro district isn’t very intimidating in comparison to most central districts that you find in United States, but it’s very interesting to be able to look at the architecture and the history throughout the center of the city.
