After only a couple of hours on the ground, Mariel and I began our Peruvian adventure in downtown Lima. Our first destination of the day was La Catedral, a little north of downtown.
Along the way, we explored the Ministry of Justice, a shopping mall and the primary shopping street (we were a foot taller than the entire crowd!).
It was a muggy day, and the coolness of La Catedral and, afterward, San Francisco were welcome.
PS: it nearly NEVER rains in Lima.
