Miraflores, a modern city in Lima

Miraflores, Peru

After many time wondering if Lima would be a good idea to visit I made my mind and took my plane. It was christmas time and I had a reservation in a 'self catering apartment' in Miraflores, a lively district of Lima.
I really enjoyed my staying in that apartment because of the hospitality of the owner, a middle age woman who told me where to go and how to find the best of the city.
In a week I visited wondeful places, including inca and pre inca sites.
The market of handicrafts was full of beautiful and colorful things, also alpaca furs a very good prices.
But I was surpinsingly amazed was with peruvian food, really gourmet. I looked for a cooking books and found a lot of in English. I hope I will be able to prepare the recipies and to get the same flavor...
Wandering in the Love Park watching paragliders that seemed so skilled (others no so skilled) and the sunset by the Ocean, taking a 'Pisco sour' in Haiti Restaurant, walking around the Central Park admiring the paintings or asking for antiques in Av. La Paz, were all relaxing experiences I did not expected.
