It's exhausting traveling fast. Three nights, two days meant no stopping but I can definitely say I made the most of my short time in Lima.
Saturday night was a night out in bohemian Barranco. Another girl and I had flown up from Buenos Aires and, on arriving into our hostel just before midnight, discovered only a few tired travelers. After introductions, we all agreed that it would be a waste to go to bed so jumped into two taxis and headed to Barranco, famous for its bars and clubs. The area was cool, safe, and busy and we hopped between clubs for a few hours before calling it a night.
My hostel was in Miraflores, a upscale neighborhood overlooking the Pacific. On my first day here I spent an afternoon dodging rollerbladers and skateboarders along the malecon which is a pretty and well kept walkway along the cliffs. At the end (or start?) of the malecon there is a fancy mall in the side of the cliff face. Very cool.
