Today has been interesting we seem to have been to so many places and still had time to go for a gorgeous walk.
This morning started with a search for a bikini boutique in Conquistador, an area of San Isidro, Lima, very nice. Lots of shops for bikinis and accessories, just the kind of thing I like to look at. The boutique is Peuque Peru and the bikinis are designed by a Argentinian, the colours are gorgeous.
I actually ended up buying an orange hat which I am wearing in the photo below and some factor 6 sun tan lotion which smells of coconut. Enough of the factor 15 I just want a great tan NOW. The hat reminded me of a Missoni hat I spotted on the internet last night but thankfully without the price tag.
After that it was off to Miraflores and my favourite place La Tiendecita Blanca for Lomo Saltado and a raspberry bellini, both were delicious as expected.
Then it was a trip to Dedalo one of my favourite shops in Barranco I had wanted to go back and check a necklace which turned out to be a disappointment but something else caught my eye. I will share this piece with you tomorrow as the I want to show the colour at it’s best which is in daylight. The camera flash is just making it look ordinary!
We did pick up some notebooks in very traditional Peruvian colours so I will be writing my blogging notes in style. Then its was melon juice in the very pretty courtyard cafe, the juice tasted like no melon ever will taste at home.
I spotted a pink bag in there with tassels and if it had been leather it would have been amazing but it wasn’t and it spoilt the effect for me.
Then it was a journey back home to the beach and as it was such a warm day we went for a walk along the coast. We had a very nice little snack whilst on our travels, Picarones, which are basically fried donuts in fig syrup and they are delicious. On the way back home it was sunset time, and it was a very pretty sunset.
