Trip Report Lima now!

Jump to last reply

It is like San Francisco, quite chilly at night. But the sun has started breaking thru mid day, since last week apparently. Spring may eventually arrive.

If you will be coming to Lima soon, a few things to check out

Mario Testina´s new gallery in Barranco, is now part of a Mirabus tour. The normal entry for tourists is 15 soles, so not much more to go via the tour(30 soles). Sunday is reduced admission, although I am not positive if this is just Peruvians (3 soles). It is quite small so even the Mirabus usual run thru should be enough time. www.mate.pe

The Centro Cultural Britanico in Miraflores has a free gallery that stays open late, the exhibit now is Mundo Hombre.

Casa Cor opens at the end of the month in a fabulous mansion in Barranco. www.casacorperu.com Just around the corner is Las Pallas. Hotel B mentioned in the article is now open, and the restaurant is open to the public.

I went to Mistura for a few days, the food is of course good but I did not like the new location much. I would describe it as the Burning Man of Peruvian Gastronomy!
