a little whatev about lima

I barely took out the camera in downtown Lima. Not because I was afraid to get robbed, though I’m sure that was a possibility. It was hard to find something I wanted to photograph. Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by the beauty of Buenos Aires.

Peru has a rich indigenous Andean culture, and the food never disappoints. But Lima was a letdown for me. Starting with the breathing—more like sucking from an exhaust pipe. And through the grayish fog, the buildings look thoughtlessly thrown up with a veneer of tacky. But not in that sexy way. Think Melanie Griffith, not Pam Anderson. I’m glad we experienced it, but I have no need to go back.
