Photo Friday 02.09: Miraflores

The posh borough of Lima, Peru

‘Photo Friday’ is a weekly series showcasing pictures from around the world.

Three and half years ago I booked a spontaneous flight to Lima. I arrived at the airport and didn’t know what to do except that the guidebook tended to herd me towards Lima’s upscale Miraflores district. This is one of the posh neighbourhoods and I thought that would be a cool way to start the trip to Peru. And it sure was.
