Another Day in Lima, And Two More Nights…

29 June 2012


I have tried to make the best of my additional time in Lima, but it has been admittedly difficult. The most difficult thing about it was overcoming my expectations. Like the arc of a story, the narrative of a journey has a certain structure, and when that structure is interrupted and expectations are falsified despite one’s intentions to carry through with them, there is (or can be) a certain disorientation. I suppose that this is what I felt. A journey, again, like a story, has a beginning, a middle, and an end. When one arrives at the airport to depart from one’s destination and return to the ordinary business of life at home, the journey is at (or at least very near) its end. Then things go sideways, and the end was not the end. Life has departed from its script. Perhaps that is a good thing.

I had a few more good meals and got a few more pictures, though not many. The photographs above are the view from Larcomar. The Larcomar shopping center, which I mentioned in a previous post as reminding me of Pike’s Place Market in Seattle (except for being much newer and more upscale) has a lot of nice ocean view restaurants. The dessert below is from one of those restaurants, Vivaldino Larcomar. Vivaldino has another location, Vivaldino Grau, which happened to be right across the street from my hotel in Miraflores, the Hotel Antigua Miraflores, where I had an excellent dinner.
