Lima – The Incredible Pearl
Arrive in Lima, the pearled capital. The city stretches along the shores of the Pacific Ocean, meandering around hills, and accentuating the variety of culture and life that lives within the borders of Peru. The scent of spice rub from juicy rotisserie chicken drifts through the streets and mixes with the zesty citrus of the cevicherias that line the coast. The maritime air rolls over the sky. Many of the jewels of the city stand within the historic center, where the Spanish architecture is a constant reminder of a colonial past while the buildings’ uses mark the independent and modern country that Peru has become. The carnations blossom along the green grass giving red and white color to the square, the colors of the Peruvian flag, and bloom proud in front of the Government Palace. When night stretches over the city the Cathedral of Lima shines like lighted gold, while in the afternoon sun it glistens an opulent pearl. The church bells peel and spread through the streets. The jolly crowd separates and you watch the lights bounce off of history and into the night.
