Miraflores is an upscale residential district of Lima, the capital of Peru. Occupying just under 4 square miles in area, the town hugs the Pacific coast 260 feet above the ocean. Temperatures are mild, and cloud cover is common on most days. It seldom rains. So a day like today, with blue skies, is a day for photographs.
Looking north, much of Miraflores is bordered by a well maintained strip of parkland, with a wide walkway where the locals are seen jogging, walking dogs, biking, and sitting on benches. Tourists come to enjoy paragliding tours (click here for the website).
Miraflores means "Flower lookout," and beautiful flowers bloom year round.
Looking south toward Chorrillos and Barranco.
Public art is found along the park.
An obvious tribute to Güell Park created by Gaudi in Barcelona, Spain.
It's time to join Miraflores artist Rocío Nakahara for lunch, overlooking the park.
