Peru Part 1: Lima

I spent the last ten days in Peru with my husband’s side of the family. I had been to South America before, but never to Peru. We spent a few nights in Lima at the beginning and end of the trip, and visited the Amazon on a riverboat in the middle.

In Lima, we stayed in the beautiful Miraflores neighborhood, which literally translates to “to watch¬†the flowers”. It has a beautiful tropical climate, and the plants were so colorful, as was the architecture. Peruvians are not afraid of color on their homes! The cacti were also enormous and beautiful.

After a few days in Lima, we headed out to Iquitos for a 5 day boat tour of the Amazon.
