Podcast: Never Date a Traveler – Lima

“Damn, I should have brought my tripod.” It was my first day touring around Lima, Peru and I was checking out the beautiful murals of the Barranco art district. Some of the walls were truly incredible and I wanted to get some shots in front of them. Eh, I rarely ask strangers, I’d rather just do it myself. But this time around ended up being different. Listen to my latest Never Date a Traveler, with a first, actually audio of our first encounter — I happened to be go pro-ing and Periscoping the whole time! Hear all about it on Soundcloud or iTunes!

 

And as a fun bonus, in the mood of the Never Date a Traveler series, Lima seems to be a city filled with love. Definitely confirmed this when I strolled through El Parque del Amor (Love Park) on El Malecón, Lima’s 6-mile stretch of park along the waterline. The main focal point of this park is the Victor Delfín, the famous Peruvian artist who owns 2nd Home Guest House, sculpture, El Beso. Opened in 1993 on Valentine’s day, the park is a monument to love with romantic quotes scripted in mosaic tiles all around. The park draws lovers and supposedly, local couples stand under El Beso to compete for the longest kiss at sunset!

Yo quiero un mundo contigo // I want a world with you

Tu amor me reparte en la tierra // Your love brings me to earth

IMG_9371

Cuando yo abro los ojos se abre tu corazón // When I open my eyes, your heart opens

IMG_9372

Mi sangre esta alcanzando a las estrellas // My blood is reaching the stars

IMG_9373

Lirio marchito que la tarde olvida // Withered lily that the afternoon forgets

IMG_9360

Soy incorregible en el amor // I’m incorrigible in love
