So we are always spending so much time in Miraflores because that is where my family
lives; however, you guys have been telling us you need to see other parts of Lima so
today that is exactly what we are doing. We’re checking out Barranco which is a very artsy
neighborhood. Apparently, this used to be like a bohemian hangout back in the 60s. So
we’re just going to go explore on foot. We don’t really know what to expect but so far
we are seeing lots of street art and looks pretty cool.
So do you want to tell us your first impressions of Barranco so far?
Yeah, the neighborhood is even more colorful than we expected. We’ve been wandering around
for a little while and we’ve seen tonnes of different restaurants, there is a lot of colorful
buildings and there is a lot of really cool street art as well.
So we’ve found a nice little lookout point here, right?
Yeah, as you get closer to the boardwalk you have some awesome views and we didn’t realize
that so many people went to the beach here in Lima. We thought the waters might be too
cold but there are a lot of people out in the water enjoying it today.
So we have now been walking around Barranco for a while and we have finally come across
the main attraction in this neighborhood. We are standing in front of the bridge of
sighs. A really romantic spot for young couples. Apparently, this bridge has made lots of appearances
这个桥出现了很多秘鲁的歌曲和诗歌 所以是的 许多风流韵事在这里发生
in Peruvian songs and poetry. So yeah, lots of romance happening over here. Let’s take
So that was a fun little introduction to Barranco. What did you think of the place? Yeah, this
这里的街坊很有趣 有一种艺术感的地方 我们只在这里待下午的几个小时

afternoon. It would be really cool to come at night and see what the nightlife is all
Yeah, they have lots of bars and restaurants worth checking out. Yeah, it definitely seems
that way. Yes.
