Extreme Peru: Part Fifteen

El Centro Histórico

This is my favorite picture of the Peru trip. Sheli and I visited the Plaza Mayor in the historic center of Lima. As we approached the cathedral, a young newly married couple passed by. I stopped them and asked, "Will you permit me a photograph?" They kindly agreed and posed for this picture. It was perfect.

The rest of these pictures are from the Plaza Mayor.

Barry, I enjoyed reading about your trip. There are so many beautiful places in the world, as seen in your pictures. Thank you for sharing them. I've been to Peru a couple of times, and really liked Macchu Pichu, but I am seeing again that getting off the beaten tourist path, where the native people live and create their daily lives, is really where the excitement is. Blessings!
