About Lima

.

In the morning mist, pigeons alight along the citrus-yellow tiers of Lima’s San Francisco Monastery. Beyond the cloistered walkways, an old man in an alpaca sweater sits hunched over a typewriter. Above him a scrawled sign advertises his services. Soon, the Plaza des Armas is alive with a buzz of visitors, street vendors, horses and carts. Restaurateurs will vie for your custom, boasting the very freshest ceviche.

The pisco sour is Peru’s national drink. It's made using pisco brandy, lemons, sugar water, egg whites, ice and bitters.

Be sure to try Peru’s national drink, the pisco sour. It packs a punch, but you will need it to brave a ride along Lima’s hair-raising highways. Afterwards, catch your breath in the westernised district of Miraflores: its cafés and cinemas provide a refuge for culture-shocked gringos. The rolling Pacific beyond the city’s sand dunes will remind you why you came.

Built in a desert, Lima is the second-driest city in the world – only Cairo has less rainfall.
