Lima, Peru

The Andes mountains of Ecuador gave way to flat lands. Had a nice stop along the coast of little surfer towns Mancora and Trujillo where my tired body welcomed the few days of rest on the beach. I arrived at dawn in the City of the Kings. Very big city. The two days I spent here gave me a vague impression of a city trying to hold on to its past while at the same time embracing the modern world.

Here are brief moments captured during my walks.
