Plaza de Armas
save place
City square (or circle) in Lima, Peru
It was our first night in Lima, Peru and we eagerly awaited our friends who had flown in from other parts of the world so we could go out and get a feel for what our first South American city had to offer. As our van shows up, we jump right in, scream hello and head out to start our city tour. Everyone's excited. We hit a few sights and then made our way into Plaza Mayor, also known as Plaza de Armas, in Lima's historic center. In full view was the city's government palace and cathedral beautifully lit up during the warm summer night. We were all in awe with the gorgeous colonial architecture and historical significance it held. What a wonderful way to start the trip and leave an everlasting impression in our hearts. I took the time to capture the moment with my camera to share with friends and family and am now doing the same with the wonderful AFAR community.
