Miraflores, Lima, Peru - Shopping, Juggling and Paragliders
We were recently in Peru for a vacation, and stayed in the Miraflores district of Lima for a couple of days. (We stayed at the Marriott, and really enjoyed the the location, the room and the friendly staff.)
While wandering through the mall (built into the side of a cliff!), I ran to the park above us to try to capture some pictures of the coastline. While up there, I saw a group of young men juggling. After watching from a distance for a while, I decided to ask if they minded if I took some pictures. Manuel, the person I talked to happily agreed as long as he got copies.
Because there is a lot of movement and color with the juggling, I thought it was a lot of fun to take pictures and watch. These are a few of my favorites.
Around the corner, about a 1/2 mile from the mall, there is a take-off zone for para-gliders. We got a kick out of watching them flying right overhead at the mall. In some cases, we were actually looking down instead of looking up at them.
