A Day in Beautiful Lima

Our wrong turn led us to a beautiful view of the coastline in Miraflores. Without complaint, we took the longer, more scenic route to the exhibit we were searching for: Lugar de la Memoria, La Tolerancia y La Inclusion Social. The history of Sendero Luminoso’s presence in Peru is tragic and complex. This museum walked us through the timeline of events with historical photographs, newspaper articles, and video clips. Below is a modern mural depiction of events that was displayed at the end of the exhibit. Across the street from the museum was a food market where locals sold in-season fruits and veggies. The avocados were bigger than grapefruits!
