Peru


In July of 2014 we visited Peru and Bolivia.My hubby and adult son are going back this June 30th to walk the Inca  Trail.  We flew into Lima.  Met by our tour guide Victor, we collected our bags and met the rest of the group we would travel with for the next 7 days.

The first evening we walked down to the sea.  It was such a beautiful evening.


The long wall by the shore is decorated with mosaic




El Beso (the kiss)   Parque del Amor" (Love Park)
Every year they have a contest  to see who can hold the pose of the kissing couple.
The year we were there the winners had held the pose for 55 minutes!
Now THAT is a KISS to remember.


We spent the first day visiting the major sights in Lima.

Many of the apartments have a  beautiful ornate balcony



Palace of archbishop and Cathedral  www.arzobispadodelima.org

built in 1535
The beautiful arched ceiling panels are wood so that they can move with earthquakes




 

I love visiting the old churches across the world.  Such beauty in the architecture!

I am loving your photos more than you know! My granddaughter is in Peru right now on a school trip. Some of your photos are of the same places but different angles and close ups.

WONDERFUL photos! Wow...what an incredible place to go....I know you had an amazing time. The church is just breath-taking! The contest for the long-lasting kiss is a cute idea. :-)
