Exploring Lima, Peru

Peru is such a fun country and we're starting our adventure in the capital, Lima! Great food, beautiful parks and landscapes, and a historic old town.

I'm on a business trip with some friends from school. We're visiting a lot of companies and learning about business in Peru and all of Latin America. Between business visits, we're exploring and eating all the food. :)

In this video, we explore Miraflores, a beautiful beach neighborhood set high on a cliff overlooking the ocean. I find a lighthouse, a Love Park, and a path down to the shore. We also eat anticuchos and picarones in Barranco, the artsy bohemian neighborhood. Finally, we explore old town and visit a cathedral, catacombs, and a street party.

**One note about the cathedral**
I was confused in the video. What I visited was NOT the Cathedral of Lima. It's a separate chapel called El Sagrario. The real cathedral was closed (it closes at 1pm on Saturday, so I was too late to visit it). I'll show you the real Lima Cathedral next time I visit Peru. El Sagrario, on the other hand, is not open to tourists, so that was a special treat.

Here are some timestamps:

0:08 - Miraflores
0:49 - The Love Park (Parque del Amor)
1:55 - The Lighthouse (Faro la Marina)
2:39 - Getting down to the beach and surfing
4:28 - Barranco (Bridge of Sighs - Puente de los Suspiros)
4:57 - Anticuchos and Picarones at Tio Mario (delicious food!)
6:24 - Plaza de Armas (old town)
6:50 - La Iglesia Parroquial del Sagrario
7:38 - Church, museum, and catacombs of San Francisco
8:45 - Street party? Honestly I'm not sure what I wandered into.

Leave a comment below and tell me any cool things I missed in Lima. We were only there for a day and a half, so we couldn't see everything. If you have any other questions, ask in the comments below. I respond to everything. :)

Thanks for watching!
