Milaflores is quite beautiful and a very affluent area. We walked through the carnival procession, which was great. There were loads of floats with dancers and singers, people doing tricks in the street and loads ...
... 3 weeks in Peru took us to a lovely cafe/bar to taste a chicha morada.
Then after lunch we all tried a Pisco Sour (Peruvian cocktail) then we went to the gold museum. Lots of masks, cups and gold and silver ormaments-it was an amazingly rich culture once.
