Miraflores, Lima, Peru

June 2010: Lima, Peru

A view of Miraflores Park from our suite
...and slightly to the left, the Pacific and the cliffs of Lima
Me, gazing somewhere
Gorgeous homes and boutiques abound in Miraflores

In the posh lobby of our hotel

to be continued....

a revelation

watermelon rinds, quickly blanched, then sprinkled with sea salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, freshly cut chives, minced garlic, a squeeze of lemon juice, a splash of soy sauce, and a splash of apple cider vinegar, then left to stew in its juices for a week = the best kimchi I've ever had.

i used to enjoy making people balk by saying that watermelon was the only food i didn't like, but now i'll have to change that.

gettin down with your new vocation

Pisco Sour Tasting and Street Art Gazing in Barranco, Lima, Peru

La Canta Rana

















































The Bridge of Sighs





Inside La Canta Rana


Pisco Sours and pickled white beans, and toasted salted hominy

















Our second to last day in Lima, we decided to explore Barranco on our own, after having briefly visited with Hernan a few days before.  We ate at La Canta Rana again, a great little cevicheria and bar owned by a retired Argentinian futbol player.  We drank piscos and watched the World Cup game next to a bunch of french people.  

This was our favorite district visited in Lima -- artistic and a bohemian.
