  1. yeah walk during the day time, if you dress up or look foreigner and walk late after 10PM be ready to be mugged…unless you look like a poor hippie from the 70’s or achorado (tough poor guy) you should be OK. Lima is one of the most danger cities in Latin America.


  2. I am missing the rest of Barranco, where is Av. Grau, where the Metro super market plays a central role, opposoite it is a crazy antique “castle”, where are all the 1930s villas mostly in ruins and not-looked after ( SAn MArtin and near coast) , where is the Bolognesi with the fab metro-bus , and the countless run-down car shops , etc., AND IN THE TOURISTY SPHERE, how about a view at the ocean from the Malecon , rich mans blvd, fine indeed. Nevertheless, the pics you did makeare GREAT indeed.
